KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) For the final two days of the Lotte Championship, it was pretty clear that the only player who could beat Brooke Henderson was Brooke Henderson.

She wasn't about to let it happen Saturday at windy Ko Olina Golf Club, where she won by four shots. The Canadian was too talented, and she had some very important people to play for, dedicating her victory to the people involved in the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team bus crash in Saskatchewan.

"It's extremely sad, a terrible tragedy what happened up there," Henderson said. "I know it kind of affected my whole country. Everybody really took it kind of personally.
