Moments later, Henderson saved par on 18 from just over three feet that all but clinched the victory.

"The last few weeks I struck my irons really, really well", Pace said.

"I had a really good feeling and made a lot of birdies, a lot of putts". The leaderboard is packed.

"I didn't quite see all those numbers, but I knew the golf course had to be softer", Lewis said.

In the meantime, Henderson is slated to attend media day for the 2017 CP Canadian Women's Open at the Ottawa Hunt Club this Wednesday. "I practiced that shot in the practice rounds and it jumped forward on the first bounce there and I don't think I got that today". So to get my fourth win is super exciting and Im just excited for the rest of the summer now.”.

Henderson was also excited to win on Father's Day with her parents following her and her sister as her caddie. "He's my coach and my best friend and a great father".

Wie, who hasn't won this year on the tour, made a run by going 4 under on the first eight holes but had to settle for pars the rest of the way en route to a closing 65.

"It was just swirling so it was tough to really concentrate on the shot that you wanted to hit and commit to it", Thompson said. “The wind just started blowing and it was just interesting. "Some spots are really wet, some spots are dry, but overall I felt like I played good this week and I'm happy about it".

Henderson's victory couldn't have come at a more opportune time as she had went more than a year since her latest win, which was also her first, and to this point, lone major title. "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.

The teen became the 15th different victor on the LPGA Tour in 2017 and the first from Canada.

In a three-way tie for third at 266 were Su Oh, Madelene Sagstrom and Moriya Jutanugarn.

Henderson located 16 greens in regulation and covered the closing 34 holes at Blythefield, in Grand Rapids, without a single bogey on her card. "I feel comfortable. I played here past year and I'm excited for the weekend".

Due to flooding the fifth hole was played as a par 3 instead of a par 5 with Ko picking up one of her birdies at the hole.

While Canadian Henderson is in the hunt for her fourth Tour win, South Korean rookie Park is still searching for her breakthrough triumph.
