On Sunday, the 24-year-old golfer had two birdies and returned a 70 (-2) card for her last lap at the Tournament of Champions presented in Orlando, Florida.

Henderson thus finished the competition with a cumulative of 275 (-13), which represents three shots more than the winner, the American Danielle Kang. The representative of the maple leaf and 11e world-ranked player had no bogeys during the weekend rounds.

Meanwhile, Kang shot 68 (-4) in the final round of the Florida event, collecting six birdies and committing two bogeys. This is his sixth career victory on the LPGA Tour and his first coronation since the Marathon Classic in August 2020.

Kang benefited from the collapse of compatriot Nelly Korda to prevail. The world number 1 was in first place in the standings after 54 holes, but she gave up a card of 75 (+3) on Sunday. She finished the competition tied with Frenchwoman Céline Boutier, in fourth place.
