Brooke Henderson wins in Hawaii to tie Canadian victory mark
KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) - Brooke Henderson successfully defended her Lotte Championship title Saturday to tie Sandra Post's record for LPGA Tour victories by a Canadian with eight.
The 21-year-old Henderson closed with a 2-under 70 at breezy Ko Olina Golf Club for a four-stroke victory over Eun-Hee Ji.
Henderson rebounded from a bogey on the par-5 first with birdies on the par-4 third and par-5 fifth, also birdied the par-4 11th and closed with seven straight pars to finish at 16-under 272.
George Knudson and Mike Weir share the Canadian mark on the PGA Tour, also each winning eight times.
Ji shot a 73. Ariya Jutanugarn (73) and Minjee Lee (74) tied for third at 11 under.
Nelly Korda, tied with Henderson for the third-round lead, finished with a quadruple-bogey 8 for a 77 that left her seven strokes back at 9 under.
