Brooke Henderson dominated at Ko Olina Golf Club in Honolulu on Saturday to claim her victory in the Lotte Championships, finishing at 12-under par and winning by four shots.
Boldly attacking the course in a difficult wind, Henderson started the final round with a one-shot lead over Mo Martin, but eventually secured her victory with a three-under par 69, 12-under par for the tournament and winning by four shots.
Mo Martin had a disappointing round, shooting 78 and playing her way out of contention. Azahara Munoz finished in second place with a score of 8-under par for the tournament, whilst Nasa Hataoka and Inbee Park were tied for third at 7-under.
At just 20 years old, Henderson now has six LPGA victories under her belt, including a major championship at the 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. Even more impressively though, her win at the Lotte Championships marks the fourth consecutive year in which she has won an LPGA event. That’s an incredible feat for any player, but even more so considering her age.
The Canadian dedicated her performance this week to the victims of the Humboldt tragedy, in which sixteen people died when a bus carrying the Humboldt Broncos, a junior team in the Saskatchewan league, crashed when a tractor trailer collided with it. Henderson played her rounds with a green and yellow ribbon in her hair, the teams colours.
