A late stumble left Brooke Henderson clinging to a one-shot lead on Friday (April 13) at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship in Hawaii, as she headed into this weekend's final round. Her final-round 3-under 69 left her at 12 under, four ahead of Azahara Munoz, whose 67 was the low round on a very hard scoring day. Edberg, from Sweden, is ranked 850th in her first LPGA start.
Henderson had three top 10s this season coming into the LOTTE Championship, but also two uncharacteristic missed cuts.
She started the round strong with a birdie, but struggled on the front nine with five bogeys and a double bogey. The Smiths Falls, Ont., native was too talented, and she had some very important people to play for, dedicating her victory to the people involved in the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus crash in Saskatchewan. "I know it kind of affected my whole country".
Top-ranked Shanshan Feng (71), third-ranked Inbee Park (72) and sixth-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (69) tied for third at 7-under. Everybody really took it kind of personally. She was two shots back after her fifth birdie of the day, at the 14th, but parred in. "They're always going to be in our thoughts and prayers".
"I feel like I'm in a great spot and I'm hitting the ball really well and I can depend on my putting right now".

As for runner-up Munoz, she matched her best result on tour in four years. "I think I'm back to 2014 when I last contended, but I have gone through quite a few health issues".
Taiwan's Peiyung Chien (final-round 2 under) and Americans Lindy Duncan (2 under) and Lizette Salas (even) shared sixth place at 6 under par.
