KAPOLEI, Hawaii (AP) Brooke Henderson successfully defended her title in the Lotte Championship on Saturday to tie Sandra Post's record for LPGA Tour victories by a Canadian with eight.

The 21-year-old Henderson closed with a 2-under 70 at windy Ko Olina Golf Club for a four-stroke victory over Eun-Hee Ji.

"When I was younger it was just a goal to be on the LPGA Tour, to win my first event," Henderson said. "And when that happened and I won my first major the year after, things kind of just started to fall into place. I knew the record was eight. Just kept creeping toward it the last three years, which was really exciting.
