Henderson holds off Wie, Thompson to win Meijer LPGA Classic

Henderson, meanwhile, will take next week off and return home to Ottawa before heading into the KPMG Women's PGA Championship as the defending champion.

Canada's Brooke Henderson has won her 4th LPGA Tour title with a two-shot win over Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie at the US$2 million Meijer LPGA Classic at the Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids in MI.

After the par-five fifth hole was reduced to a par three due to flooding, Thompson notched four birdies on the back nine for a five-under-par 64 on the Blythfield Country Club course. "It's been a packed leaderboard since the very first shot on the first hole". Lydia Ko, at No. 2 after an 85-week run at the top, was 6 under after a 71. Jutanugarn had a chance to nip Henderson but three bogeys in her final six holes were her ultimate undoing.

Crosby had another break-away midway through the period, but this time Rinne stopped both the first shot and the rebound. For Game 1 , Pittsburgh is a -165 moneyline favorite against the +145 underdog Predators with a 5.5-goal total.


Brooke Henderson who led after each of the 1st two rounds shot 67 and is part of a group one shot back at -14.

"I started hitting it better and I just kept making the putts", she said.

Dave Henderson celebrated with his daughter, Brooke, after she won the Meijer LPGA Classic. "I had zero bogeys on a day like today where it was super windy". "It's been a little bit of a rough season so far, not getting the results that I've been looking for but this week seems to be a turnaround week and hopefully I can just finish strong the next two days", Henderson told reporters.

Kane to the rescue
England , however, refused to lie down as they registered what could be an important point in their quest to qualify for Russian Federation .


Thompson hit one of the longest drives of the day on No. 9, put her approach shot within 20 feet and made the birdie putt to tie for the lead. "I'm just excited. It was a good week for me here a year ago so I have great memories". But she bogeyed No. 10 to fall out of the lead.

"I didn't quite see all those numbers, but I knew the golf course had to be softer", Lewis said. I was looking at birdie nearly every hole, which is quite nice.

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