Canada's Brooke Henderson pulls away to win Lotte Championship — NewsAlert

No one could catch the five-time LPGA Tour victor as the wind gusted to 20 miles per hour later in the day.

Playing the final round two shots behind the leader, Brooke Henderson of Canada, Park played an unusually inconsistent round. She parred her final 11 holes.

Henderson dropped three shots in the closing three holes of her third round to open the door for the chasing pack, only to mix four birdies with a sole blemish on the final day.

Henderson, however, didn't give Park a chance, extending her lead to two shots with a birdie on the par-five 14th.

Five strokes ahead early on the back nine, Henderson four-putted the par-3 16th for a double bogey and bogeyed the par-4 18th at Ko Olina. I feel like I'm in a great spot and I'm hitting the ball really well and I can depend on my putting right now. "This week it maybe wasn't my best but I still won, so it's good". It was her sixth LPGA win.

Spain's Azahara Munoz had a 67, the low round of the day, to finish second.

The 20-year-old Canadian now leads first-round leader Shanshan Feng and Mo Martin in the standings heading into Friday. "Watching Pernilla [Lindberg] win a major was a lot of motivation". She is the first golfer from China - female or male - to reach No. 1 in the world rankings. She played with Hawaii's Michelle Wie, the 2014 Lotte champ.

She was scheduled to tee off 1:12 p.m. Hawaii time before deciding to pull out. The Canadian was too talented, and she had some very important people to play for, dedicating her victory to the people involved in the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus crash in Saskatchewan.

The $2 million LPGA tournament ends Saturday.
