GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. >> Brooke Henderson won the Meijer LPGA Classic today for her fourth LPGA Tour title, holding off Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson by two strokes.
The 19-year-old Henderson closed with a 66 on the Blythefield layout that was reduced to a par of 69 — the fifth hole was played as a par 3 instead of a par 5 — the final two rounds because of flooding.
Honolulu’s Wie had four birdies on the front nine and finished with a 65. Wie tied for third at the ShopRite Classic on June 2 and today marked her fifth top-10 finish of the season. Thompson had a 69.
Henderson finished at 17-under 263 and earned $300,000. The Canadian led after each of the first two rounds, shooting 63-67 at a par of 71, and had a 67 on Saturday to drop a stroke behind Thompson.
Henderson won twice last year, taking the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship for her first major, and successfully defending her title in the Cambia Portland Classic.
