LPGA Tour veteran Sherri Steinhauer retired after missing the cut at the Canadian Women's Open.

''It was in Canada that I captured my very first win on tour,'' said Steinhauer of her victory at what was then a major tournament called the Du Maurier Classic in 1992 in Winnipeg. ''My parents were there and it was their wedding anniversary.

''I lost my mom this December and this week, on Thursday, it would have been mom and dad's 60th anniversary. I wanted to come here and have this be my last event.''

Her brothers and father flew in for the tournament. Steinhauer opened with a 79 on Thursday and shot 71 on Friday to miss the cut by seven strokes.

The 48-year-old won eight times since joining the Tour in 1986, including two majors.
