Brooke Henderson started the day with a two-shot lead but lost it with a bogey at the first hole while her closest rival, South Korea’s So Yeon Ryu, birdied.

As many as five players were tied for the lead along the way but Henderson closed with a 71 to finish at 17-under and win her second major title by one shot. She had previously won the 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.

“To be sitting here a two-time major championship is just an unreal feeling. My coach, my dad, and my mom’s support, and of course Brit (Henderson, her sister and caddie) who’s out there all the time with me, it’s just amazing, and it’s going to be really cool when we can all celebrate together.”

Henderson is the first Canadian golfer of any gender with more than one major title, and extended her lead as the most successful professional Canadian golfer, male or female, with 12 victories. She is now the 24th player in LPGA Tour history to cross the $10 million threshold in earnings.

“In 2016, winning the first major changed my life. My world ranking shot up and I just received a ton more attention from fans and media. It also made me feel like I really belonged out here and that I could contend for big, major championships and compete against the best in the world, which is an amazing feeling,” said Henderson. “It has been a long time and getting off to a fast start early this week, it just felt great to be at the top of the leaderboard at a major. I just tried to take that excitement as far as I could.”

American Sophia Schubert closed with a 68 to finish second at 16-under, her best result on Tour.

“I was kind of nervous all day, a little more than yesterday, and Britney (Hamilton, her caddie) just kept saying, Hey, just take a deep breath. It’s okay. Just keep doing what you’re doing,” said Schubert, a 2021 graduate of the Epson Tour. “I think the last few holes coming in actually I just had the sense of like peace, so I just hit every shot and kept going.”

England’s Charley Hull closed with a 67 for a share of third place at 15-under alongside New Zealand’s Lydia Ko (66), Japan’s Mao Saigo (64), South Koreand’s Hyo Joo Kim (67) and Spain’s Carlota Ciganda (68).
