Canada's Brooke Henderson pulls away to win Lotte Championship — NewsAlert

Canada's Brooke Henderson pulls away to win Lotte Championship — NewsAlert

An uncharacteristic closing calamity has cost Minjee Lee a prominent spot on the LPGA Tour's Lotte Championship leaderboard in Hawaii.

In its seventh year, the Lotte Championship at Ko Olina Golf Club has a seventh different victor. A round of even par kept Park tied for third and put her short of victory at the tournament once again.

Top-ranked Shanshan Feng, the first-round leader, was two strokes back with Mo Martin after a bogey-free 69.

"Watching Pernilla Lindberg win her first major two weeks ago now, it was actually a lot of motivation and it really inspired me", Henderson described. Park has already won a tournament, the Bank of Hope Founders Cup in March, and with great finishes, she is ranked first in the Race to CME Globe points standing.

Feng's 74 was only her second over-par round of the year.

Another to miss the weekend action will be Victorian Su Oh, whose 73 today was an improvement on her opening 77, but only enough to reach six over.

The Canadian bounced back to birdie the 14th and roll in a 10-footer at the 16th - where she four-putted during the third round - to close out her win and end the week on 12 under and three clear of nearest challenger Azahara Munoz.

Henderon shot a three-under 69 Saturday to extend her lead to four strokes.

Poulter and his chasers will have a quick turnaround Sunday with officials starting play at 7 a.m. and going off in threesomes on both tees because of expected bad weather in the afternoon.

"I've been kind of struggling with my putting all year", Henderson admitted.

Henderson and fellow Canadians Alena Sharp, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Brittany Marchand and Maude-Aimee Leblanc wore green and gold ribbons in memory of those killed in the Saskatchewan bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.
