PORTLAND, Ore. – Brooke Henderson was able to survive some tense moments and go on to win the LPGA Cambia Portland Classic for a second time.

The 18-year-old from Smiths Falls defended her title Sunday, shooting a 14-under 274 after the final round 71 at Columbia Edgewater Country Club.

Stacey Lewis from the United States was second.

Henderson survived some tense moments on the back nine as she pulled out a four-shot win.

She’s the first back-to-back Portland winner since Annika Sorenstam did it in 2002-2003.
