BC-GLF--LPGA Tour,1st Ld-Writethru

Henderson, who hails from Smith Falls, Ont., shot a 6-under 66 in 15 miles per hour morning wind at Ko Olina Golf Club to get to 10 under.

"I made a lot of clutch par saves to keep the momentum and keep it bogey-free".

The Canadian followed her opening 68 with a superb six-under-par 66 today to reach 10 under, two clear of American Mo Martin and Chinese world No.1 Shanshan Feng with another two shots back to the rest of the field, including Sweden's recent ANA Inspiration victor Pernilla Lindberg.

Jutanugarn tied for third, five back, with top-ranked Shanshan Feng (71) and third-ranked Inbee Park (72), who bogeyed the last two holes.

Queenslander Katherine Kirk cut things tight with a late bogey, but her second-round 74 proved just enough to advance to the closing rounds on the cut number at three over.

"Mentally I was in a great spot this week", Henderson said. "Fortunately it didn't rain too hard and it helped with the softness of the course". This one came with a $300,000 paycheck, bringing her career earnings to nearly $4 million. The Canadian junior hockey team was on their way to a playoff game in Saskatchewan when the bus collided with a semi-trailer.

"It's extremely sad, a awful tragedy what happened up there", Henderson said.

The 20-year-old impressed in wet and windy conditions at Ko Olina Golf Club to post a three-under 69 and complete a wire-to-wire victory.

She played with Hawaii's Michelle Wie, the 2014 Lotte champ. She played the first 11 holes Saturday in 2 under to carve out a three-shot advantage, then faltered again. "Now that I'm living on the mainland and come back I get a little surprised by it".

Henderson, a native of Smiths Falls, Ont., carded a three-under-par 69 in the final round, with only one bogey against four birdies.

He was most proud of his birdie on 18. Sabbatini said he hurt his back on Sunday while practising for this event. "It is the key because 18 is not a forgiving hole", Sabbatini said.Johnson, who grew up in SC but is playing here for the first time since 2009, is coming off a tenth place finish in last week's Masters.
