Her 10th win on the LPGA Tour ends a two-year drought.

“Unreal. It’s pretty crazy,” said Henderson. “To get my ninth win was such a big deal in Canada, and then since then I have been just trying to chase that tenth one. To get it here, it’s just — I’m just so happy and it’s hard to believe.”

“I feel like I have been playing really solid golf and just haven’t had the victory in what feels like a really long time now. Just to get it across the line and to have the work that Brit and I have been putting in pay off and be able to celebrate together and get the tenth win on the LPGA Tour is really incredible.”

American Jessica Korda who came in on top of the leaderboard and broke or equalled the course record all three days said with tougher course conditions and a few unfortunate misses it just wasn’t happening.

“Really frustrating, really couldn’t get anything going. I was hitting it really good and then just it wasn’t happening for me for some reason. Just kept getting screwed and the wind kept dropping and then coming back up, it just wasn’t happening,” said Korda. “I don’t know. I couldn’t make anything happen today. I tried. I tried to force a couple birdies–I had a great little 8-iron into the par-5 hole 15 and took the biggest bounce I’ve ever seen and goes over the green.”

Australian Hannah Green is tied in third place, meeting her top-10 goal and inching her way closer to another LPGA Tour victory, the last being at the 2019 Cambia Portland Classic.

“I think putting has been pretty key for me, but then also hitting greens in regs. You know, now that I have shorter shots in I expect that my greens in regs will go up a bit higher,” said Green who recently gained a lot of distance on her clubs. “That was probably the key to me having the good results this week was making sure that I was missing it in the right areas and hitting a lot of greens. I feel like I’m pretty close. Nate and I, my caddie, have been talking about it, and we feel like we’re not far off a win. Hopefully Thailand and Singapore, be my first time, so excited to get over there and see what can happen.”

Tied alongside Green and a big fan of Henderson herself was South Korea’s Jin Young Ko who thought back to 2019, when she and the Canadian shared a memorable round at the 2019 CP Women’s Open.

“Well, we played many times and I won in CP 2019 and I played with Brooke and she celebrated for me, so I wanted to celebrate to her,” said Ko. “It was a good honor to play with Brooke when she won, so I’m happy.”
