"It was just like the ideal day", the Smiths Falls, Ont., native said.
"I did that and I had an advantage over the rest of the field all four days". So, unfortunately, its a tough hole and I just came away with bogey, which is not really what I was looking for..
American Lexi Thompson, who is seeking to rebound from a play-off loss last week, fired a five-under 64 to grab a slim lead after a rain-hit third round at the Meijer Classic on Saturday. "It's cool to be able to make those putts under pressure", Henderson told Golf channel after sinking a three-foot par putt at the last to finish at 17-under 263.
Henderson, meanwhile, will look to win just her third major title after winning the KPMG Women's PGA Championship and the Cambia Portland Classic a year ago.
But she hadnt won an LPGA tournament since, a winless drought that spanned almost a year before breaking it Sunday.
I was kind of surprised when I looked at the leaderboard and I had a two-shot lead on the 18 green. "Super happy and I'm just glad it's done and I finally have my fourth win".
Oh moved into potential contention for the title when she birdied six of her opening 12 holes before a bogey at the 14th slowed the momentum. 7 and 8 and then adding one more birdie at No. 11.
"Two bogeys to finish, but that just gives me a little more motivation going into tomorrow", said Henderson.
"I've been focusing on staying positive and making sure I do my routine on every shot and making sure I'm fully relaxed over my shots and in between shots", Thompson, an eight-time LPGA Tour victor, told Golf Channel. "A lot of things I learned about this week and it is always fun to play solid and have a chance to get close to the lead and be on the leaderboard", she explained.
"This morning, (my Dad) said, 'Do it for me, ' so this is definitely for him", Henderson said. I didnt roll the putter that well today. It is what it is. "I'm just excited. It was a good week for me here past year so I have great memories". The wind just started blowing and it was just interesting.
Moriya Jutanugarn, Ariya Jutanugarn's older sister, is fifth at nine under after a 66.
Lydia Ko has finished in a tie for 10th place in her first tournament back on the LPGA Tour after a three week absence. Jutanugarn's last two victories have been in Canada.
Henderson said she'll be taking the next week off after playing in a charity event Monday in Rhode Island.
"I knew where I stood with four holes to go", Thompson said.
