HENDERSON WINS FOURTH TITLE
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Brooke Henderson made it a special Father's Day.
With father and coach Dave Henderson and other relatives watching, the Canadian, 19, won the Meijer Classic on Sunday for her fourth LPGA Tour title, holding off Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson by two strokes.
"It was just like the perfect day," said Henderson, who closed with 66 to finish at 17-under 263. "My dad is my coach, he's a great father to both my sister (caddie Brittany) and I, and he's one of our best friends.
"He's with us all the time, and he gave me a lot of lines early in the week that I didn't know, that I wouldn't normally take without him there. But he said, 'If you want to win and you want to contend, you need to take these lines off the tee.' "
Wie finished with 65, and third-round leader Thompson had 69.
