Brooke Henderson of Canada and her caddie Brittany Henderson make their way to the 18th green as a light rain falls during the second round of the LPGA LOTTE Championship at the Ko Olina Golf Club in Kapolei, Hawaii on April 12, 2018.

In its seventh year, the Lotte Championship at Ko Olina Golf Club has a seventh different victor.

Her second-round three-over-par 75 followed her opening 70 to leave her one over and in a share of 32 place.

The music playing on Golf Channel after the final putt dropped at the LPGA Tour's LOTTE Championship Saturday night was Sia's Unstoppable, a fitting serenade to Canadian champion Brooke Henderson, who breezed to a four-shot victory on windy Ohau. Park has already won a tournament, the Bank of Hope Founders Cup in March, and with great finishes, she is ranked first in the Race to CME Globe points standing.

Queenslander Katherine Kirk cut things tight with a late bogey, but her second-round 74 proved just enough to advance to the closing rounds on the cut number at three over. In Hilton Head (United States), Rory Sabbatini battled through the discomfort of a sore back to shoot a seven-under 64 for first-round lead at the RBC Heritage, with world number one Dustin Johnson not far behind.




It saw her finish on one-under overall, which in the end was 11 shots off Henderson, with the 20-year-old cruising to her sixth LPGA Tour victory, winning by four shots after a final-round three-under 69.

Hawaii native Michelle Wie shot a 73 and is tied for 31st.

Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., tied for 50th at 5 over.

"I didn't play bad, but I think I missed about three to four putts that were less than 1 meter long", Park said after the round.

The other KLPGA Tour golfer, Lee Jeong-eun, finished tied for 16th at 2 under par.
