REGINA, Saskatchewan (AP) Brooke Henderson became the first Canadian to win the country's national championship in 45 years, closing with a 7-under 65 for a four-stroke victory Sunday in the CP Women's Open at chilly Wascana Country Club.
The 20-year-old Henderson, from Smiths Falls, Ontario, finished at 21-under 267, capping the emotional victory with a short birdie putt on the par-4 18th.
Jocelyne Bourassa is the only other Canadian to win the national championship, accomplishing the feat in 1973 at Montreal Municipal in the inaugural La Canadienne - the event that became the major du Maurier Classic, then the current non-major in 2001.
Henderson earned $337,500 for her second victory of the season and seventh of her LPGA Tour career, one short of Sandra Post's record for Canadians.
Angel Yin was second after a 68. Jennifer Song (67) was six back at 15 under.
