The 20-year-old Canadian won her seventh LPGA tournament and became the first Canadian to win the women’s national championship since Jocelyne Bourassa in 1973. She is now also only one win away from tying Sandra Post for most LPGA wins by a Canadian. And Henderson did it with an impressive display of power as she fearlessly attacked the golf course.
Averaging more than 286 yards with her driver off the tee, Henderson closed with a 65 to finish at 21-under-par 267 with Angel Yin in second place at 271. Jennifer Song, who made six birdies in a row beginning on No. 8, was at 273 with Minjee Lee, Amy Yang, Austin Ernst and Su Oh at 274. Nasa Hatakoa ended at 275 with Maria Torres, Anna Nordqvist, Lydia Ko and Rolex No. 1 Sung Hyun Park.
Henderson is well on her way to being the greatest female player ever from Canada and may soon be in the conversation for best in the world.
