Canadian Henderson tames strong winds for fourth LPGA win

Canadian Henderson tames strong winds for fourth LPGA win

Henderson displayed a mix of power and precision to card a bogey-free final round of three-under 66 on the Blythfield Country Club course, which played to a par of 69 over the weekend due to flooding on the third hole. In a logjam one behind her were Lee-Anne Pace of South Africa, Sung Hyun Park and Jenny Shin of South Korea, and Brooke Henderson of Canada.

"Could have been really close to being a great shot", Henderson said. "I was looking at birdie on nearly every hole, which was nice".

"Two bogeys to finish, but that just gives me a little more motivation going into tomorrow". "I'm really excited to be in this position, I haven't been in a little while and so I'm excited I have two more days left to kind of redeem myself". My irons were really good.

China's Feng Shanshan, American Lexi Thompson and Henderson's Canadian counterpart Jennifer Ha are among six golfers tied for second after shooting 64. There were a couple of long putts I made, unexpected putts actually. Henderson made four straight birdies from the ninth hole and looked like having a handy halfway lead until dropping shots at her final two holes.

Australia's Su Oh fired the equal best round of the day, a five-under 64, to finish the tournament in a tie for fourth at 14-under-par.

Moriya Jutanugarn, Ariya Jutanugarn's older sister, was 9 under after a 66.

"This is definitely a great layout for my game", she said.

Ko, who lost her spot on the top of the Rolex Rankings this week after 85 weeks at No.1, said, overall, that she played "pretty solid" Saturday.

The 20-year-old Kiwi, who shot an opening round four-under 65, fell back with a two-over 71 on day two, but was happy with the way she regrouped, particularly after torrential overnight rain.

Seven golfers, meanwhile, are one shot further back at 10-under, just five shots back of the lead.
