Brooke Henderson equaled the record for most wins on the LPGA or PGA Tours by a Canadian golfer after she had retained her title at the Lotte championship.

"It has been so surreal for the last couple of years I am so happy."

Henderson won her first LPGA Tour title at the 2015 Portland Classic as a qualifying competition while her only major title came at the 2016 Women & # 39; s PGA Championship.

She entered the final round for the lead with Nelly Korda but the American produced a five-against-par 77 in her final round to final h eighth.
