Brooke Henderson hangs on to win LPGA's Lotte

With four birdies and one bogey in the final round, Henderson shot a 3-under 69 to finish 12-under par for the tournament, giving her a four-stroke victory over Azahara Munoz of Spain.

Henderson, who hails from Smith Falls, Ont., shot a 6-under 66 in 15 miles per hour morning wind at Ko Olina Golf Club to get to 10 under.

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

"I didn't play bad, but I think I missed about three to four putts that were less than 1 meter long", Park said after the round.

Sabbatini took advantage of a lack of wind which helped make for ideal playing conditions at the Harbour Town Golf Links course.Sabbatini, who started on the back nine, finished his bogey-free round with seven birdies, including back-to-back ones to close out the round. "I kind of got into more trouble, so I went back to my aggressive ways".

Lydia Ko finished in a tie for 20th on the LPGA Tour's latest event, in Hawaii. Martin, the 2014 Women's British Open, had a 67.

Cleveland's George Hill got blind-sided on a pick by Pacers reserve Trevor Booker in the first half, then his back stiffened up. Asked to elaborate, the fifth-year guard, who arrived in IN alongside forward Domanta Sabonis, added, "I already had fuel".

Pernilla Lindberg, Park Inbee and Lindy Duncan are tied for fourth at six under.Henderson made four birdies on her first six holes and needed just 24 putts on Thursday.

Henderon shot a three-under 69 Saturday to extend her lead to four strokes.

Henderson and fellow Canadians Alena Sharp, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Brittany Marchand and Maude-Aimee Leblanc wore green and gold ribbons in memory of those killed in the Saskatchewan bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.

Hawaii's Michelle Wie tied for 11th after shooting 71. Park has already won a tournament, the Bank of Hope Founders Cup in March, and with great finishes, she is ranked first in the Race to CME Globe points standing.
