Brooke Henderson stumbles late, keeps Meijer LPGA lead

Eight players were tied for the lead at one stage of the final round but Henderson broke clear with three birdies in five holes around the turn.

Henderson, meanwhile, will look to win just her third major title after winning the KPMG Women's PGA Championship and the Cambia Portland Classic previous year.

"I was surprised when I looked at the leaderboard and had a two-shot lead on the 18th green but I'm super happy", Henderson said. There's a couple tee shots where you need to hit it really straight, which I think is kind of my advantage or my strength. So to get my fourth win is super exciting and Im just excited for the rest of the summer now.”.

Oh ran off four birdies in a five-hole stretch on the front nine and added two more birdies plus a bogey on the back to post the best final-round score of the three in that group with a 64. She birdied Nos. 7 and 8, while Thompson faltered. And any day on Sunday, theres that little bit of extra pressure and youre in contention so you want to play really well so you might push a few more shots than you would like.”. "Unfortunately, two bogeys to finish".

Now Henderson looks ahead to her title defense at the Women's PGA Championship on June 29-July 2 at Olympia Fields Country Club in IL on the heels of a win that was definitely worth the wait.

“I hit my driver great the whole day, so that was definitely a positive, ” Thompson said. There were a couple of long putts I made, unexpected putts actually. It is what it is. "This is just proving to myself that I'm on the right track and that I'm doing good things and that I can be out here and play against the best players, for sure". "I was looking at birdie on nearly every hole, which was nice".

It was the second consecutive year that Thompson led or shared the lead after Saturday and dealt with a string of bogeys on Sunday to take her out of the picture.

"That putt on 16 was really huge, especially now looking back", she said after her victory. "The wind just started blowing and it was just interesting".

Moriya Jutanugarn was 9 under after a 66.

Wie shot 4-under 65 in the final round to earn her fifth top-10 finish of the season and has been playing well enough that career win No. 5 doesn't seem far off.

"It was just a matter of staying patient", said Thompson, who lost to Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn in the playoff at the Manulife Classic.
