Henderson defends Portland title


Teenager Brooke Henderson made it back-to-back Portland Classic titles with a four-shot win on Sunday.

The Canadian, 18, opened with a seven-under 65 and never looked back, finishing at 14 under in Oregon.

Henderson had a 71 in the final round to end up four shots clear of Stacy Lewis (69), claiming her third LPGA Tour win.

She has claimed two of those in Portland, adding to the Women's PGA Championship crown secured in June.

Henderson holed two birdies on her first four holes and went birdie-bogey at 12 and 13 on her way to claiming a relatively comfortable win.

Lewis finished at 10 under and outright second, a shot ahead of Norway's Suzann Pettersen (72).

Austin Ernst (73) and Mariajo Uribe (75) were tied for fourth at eight under.
