Henderson breaks Canadian LPGA wins record

Henderson breaks Canadian LPGA wins record

It marks the fourth consecutive year that Henderson has won multiple titles and her third victory on Father's Day.

Brooke Henderson waves to the crowd after making birdie on the 13th hole during the final round of the Meijer LPGA Classic on Sunday.

"Of course, that's in the back of your mind, but it's long from over", Henderson said. At even-par on her round through 15 holes, Henderson wasn't necessarily playing poorly.

"It's really cool", Brooke said with a smile, "earlier this year, to get my eighth win and to tie the record was a huge deal for me so to get that is really special for me and i'm just really excited for the rest of this summer and hopefully many more wins in the future". "You know, I think it really boosted the whole country when they won and I was just trying to do something similar this week". Jenifer won the inaugural Augusta National Women's Amateur in April and the NCAA individual title previous year.

"It's fantastic", Brooke's father, Dave said, "Brooke is very special and she's a special golfer, it's her third time winning on Father's Day for me, it motivates her and it's a special day and Brooke is a special person".

"So I just committed to it, aimed a few yards right and just tried to hit a hold-off shot", said Thompson.

Australian golfer Su Oh equalled her best result this LPGA season and shot a final round 66 to finish in a tie for second at the event in MI.

When Henderson was standing on the 18 tee she heard the roar ahead after Thompson closed her round with an eagle to move within one.

Thompson was the star of the day, however, overcoming two bogeys en route to her second-lowest round on the LPGA Tour.

Jennifer Kupcho was another stroke back after her third 67. "I had a good warm up and just felt good and came out relaxed and started off with a birdie and from there it just kind of went".

"With how Brooke played like the first two rounds, you can go low", said Oh, who shot her lowest round of the 2019 season on Sunday.

"I felt like on the back nine my putts just, you know, probably the nerves and just got some reads wrong, but holed a bomb on 16", said Oh, who made her birdie putt on No. 16 from 60 feet. I hit a lot of greens both rounds. "The last couple tournaments I've been struggling with that, so just to hit the ball well has been nice". Two of her birdies came on par-5s and she has one more on 18th coming up.

"I had about 197 into the last hole and a little into the wind, so it's a flawless number for a full 4-iron. Can't wait. I like the position of chasing the leader, but hopefully tomorrow at one point, I could end up with maybe being chased, so we'll see".
