She thus puts her hands on her 11me crown of his career on the LPGA Tour.

It is also his first win since April 2021, having taken top honors from the Omnium Hugel-Air Premia.

This time, the Ontario native defeated American Lindsey Weaver-Wright in overtime.

To do this, he hit a magnificent approach shot that finally allowed him to make an eagle on the par five of 18.me pennant.

His rival had no choice but to admit defeat.

Previously, Henderson delivered a card of 64 (-7), which represents his best performance of the week.

The 24-year-old golfer had five birdies and an eagle. Therefore, he never made a mistake during his last lap.

For her part, Weaver-Wright hit the ball 65 (-6) times.

Notably, she racked up two birdies on the last two holes to join the Canadian at the top of the standings.

The two women finished the third and final round with cumulative scores of 201 (-12).

It was the English Jodi Ewart Shadoff who took third place in this competition.

The 34-year-old athlete returned a card of 67 (-4) and closed the competition with a goal from the two leaders after the 54 regulation holes of the event played near Atlantic City.

Recall that Henderson was the only Canadian to take part in the weekend rounds at the Shoprite Classic, as Alena Sharp and Maddie Szeryk did not survive the axe.
