Brooke Henderson won the Meijer LPGA Classic by one shot Sunday to become the winningest Canadian professional golfer of all time.

The 21-year-old picked up her ninth career win on the LPGA Tour with a fitting score of 21-under. Her victory in Grand Rapids, Mich., is her second of 2019.

She opened her week with back-to-back rounds of 8-under 64 and went wire-to-wire by holding off Lexi Thompson, Nasa Hataoka, Su Oh, and Brittany Altomare, who all finished as runner-ups.

With nine wins, Henderson passed Sandra Post on the all-time wins list for a Canadian. She also moved ahead of Mike Weir and George Knudson, who won eight times each on the PGA Tour.

Post and Weir happy to see Henderson take sole possession of golfing record.
Brooke Henderson is now the undisputed monarch of Canadian golf. Her predecessors can't wait to see what she'll do next. The 21-year old from Smiths Falls, Ont., won the Meijer LPGA Classic on Sunday to break the Canadian record for professional golf titles. The victory elevated her over Sandra Post, Mike Weir and George Knudson, who have eight wins apiece on their respective tours. "I knew it was coming," said Post on Monday. The Canadian Golf Hall of Famer noted that normally Henderson wins by a wide margin, rather than the one-stroke victory she earned over Lexi Thompson, Nasa Hataoka, Su Oh and Brittany Altomare.
