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.

The five-time LPGA victor fired a six-under 66 in the second round for a two-round 10-under 134 total at the Ko Olina Golf Club in Oahu, Hawaii."Today was a lot of fun, I got off to a really fast start", said Henderson.

Redemption seemed at hand on the par-four 15th hole, when Park made a birdie putt about 6 meters (19 feet) long and got herself one shot behind Henderson. She said afterwards she drew inspiration from recent ANA Inspiration champion Pernilla Lindberg, especially after the shaky conclusion to her third round where she made a double-bogey and a bogey coming home.

"The wind wasn't as strong early today and there were softer conditions", said Henderson. "With this putting, I can't win".

"My sixth win on Tour continues to be a dream come true", Henderson was quoted as saying on the LPGA website.

It was Munoz's best finish in more than four years. "She showed a lot of grit and I thought, 'I could do that, too, ' so I owe a lot to her".

She played with Hawaii's Michelle Wie, the 2014 Lotte champ.

The closing hole slip-up left Henderson on nine-under 207 for the tournament, giving encouragement to a crowded field behind her who are all within striking distance.

Jutanugarn tied for third, five back, with top-ranked Shanshan Feng (71) and third-ranked Inbee Park (72), who bogeyed the last two holes. 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.

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