LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Brooke Henderson rallied past Jessica Korda and Jin Young Ko to win the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open on Saturday afternoon.

She had a back-nine burst – six birdies through 18 – including a run of three in four holes 11-14, to finish at 16-under, beating American Jessica Korda by one stroke.

The last stage saw her shoot a four-under-par 67.

This is the 23-year-old Smiths Falls native’s 10th LPGA Tour title.

Her last win was in June 2019 at the Meijer LPGA Classic.
