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

With her first victory of 2018, Henderson has now won a tournament in each of her four seasons on the LPGA Tour.

With bogeys on holes two, nine and 12, Ko wasn't making headway, but she picked up her game late, adding to her birdie on hole three with three successive ones from 14 to 16, before also going under on 18. Her final-round 3-under 69 left her at 12 under, four ahead of Azahara Munoz, whose 67 was the low round on a very hard scoring day. Henderson and sixth-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (69) were the only other golfers to break 70 on a day that featured rain squalls and winds gusting to 50 kph.

Pernilla Lindberg, Park Inbee and Lindy Duncan are tied for fourth at six under.Henderson made four birdies on her first six holes and needed just 24 putts on Thursday. She has never finished worse than 11th at Ko Olina. 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's extremely sad, a awful tragedy what happened up there", Henderson said. "I kind of got into more trouble, so I went back to my aggressive ways".

Munoz, who has struggled with illness injury the past few years, climbed 13 places the final day. At the turn, the 2016 Player of the Year was 3 under and three back.

Henderson and fellow Canadians Alena Sharp, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Brittany Marchand and Maude-Aimee Leblanc wore green and gold ribbons in memory of those killed in the Saskatchewan bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.

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