Henderson triumphs

Brooke Henderson captured her second consecutive Lotte Championship on Saturday, winning her eighth LPGA title to match Sandra Post for the most all-time tour triumphs by a Canadian. Henderson fired a final-round 2-under par 70 at Oahu’s Ko Olina Golf Club course in Hawaii for 16-under 272 and a four-shot victory over South Korea’s Ji Eun-hee. Post, 70, claimed eight tour titles from 1968 through 1981. “It’s amazing to be mentioned in the same sentence with Sandra Post,” Henderson said. Henderson, 21, also equaled the best showing by any Canadian man on the US PGA Tour, with Mike Weir and George Knudson having each won eight career titles. Thai Ariya Jutanugarn and Australian Minjee Lee shared third on 277, one stroke ahead of American Danielle Kang, Mexico’s Gaby Lopez and South Korea’s Choi Hye-jin.
