Canada's Brooke Henderson won the Meijer LPGA Classic on Sunday for her fourth LPGA Tour title, holding off Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson by two strokes.

Thompson, who has shown fantastic resilience to bounce back from the heartache and controversy surrounding the four shot penalty she incurred during the final round of the ANA Inspiration, completed a round of 64 to come from two off the 36 hole pace to take the lead into the final round.

Henderson had seven birdies - four in a row on Nos.

The 19-year-old could have had a bigger lead but she ended her round with back-to-back bogeys to reach a 12-under 130 total, setting the tournament's 36-hole scoring record.
