Brooke Henderson hangs on to win LPGA's Lotte

Her lead was only one at the 12th after her only bogey.

"It's extremely sad, a awful tragedy what happened up there", she said. Everybody really took it kind of personally.

The 20-year-old from Smiths Falls, Ont., was 12-under through the tournament to win by four strokes over Spain's Azahara Munoz.

New South Welshwoman Rebecca Artis will join the WA pair in round three, although with five birdies in her first two rounds, she won't be thrilled that she's two over after twin rounds of 73.

In its seventh year, the Lotte Championship at Ko Olina Golf Club has a seventh different victor.

World number one Feng Shanshan, of China, and American Mo Martin are tied for second after shooting 69 and 67 respectively.Pernilla Lindberg, Park Inbee and Lindy Duncan are tied for fourth at six under.

The $2 million LPGA Tour event ends Saturday. She drained a 10-footer for another birdie one the 16th, where she four-putted Friday. She moved within two victories of tying Sandra Post's LPGA Tour record for Canadians.

"I'm hitting the ball the best I could remember", Munoz said. "I kind of got into more trouble, so I went back to my aggressive ways".

Munoz, who has struggled with illness injury the past few years, climbed 13 places the final day. She was two shots back after her fifth birdie of the day, at the 14th, but parred in. At the turn, the 2016 Player of the Year was 3 under and three back.

Hawaii's Michelle Wie had a 71 to tie for 11th at 3-under.

Park, though, would three putt herself at the final two holes of today's final round and when Henderson birdied the 14th and 16th she had established a margin that would ensure her walk over the final two holes would be a comfortable and enjoyable one. Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., tied for 50th at 5-over.
