Brooke Henderson successfully defended her title at the Cambia Portland Classic with a four-shot victory over Stacy Lewis.

Henderson closed with a 1-under 71 at Columbia Edgewater Country Club to hold off a final-round charge by Lewis.

Mariajo Uribe, who was second coming into the final round, shot a 3-over 75 and dropped to T-4 with Austin Ernst. Uribe double-bogeyed each of her last two holes after heading to the final stretch in second place.

It’s Henderson third win of her career and the second of the year for the No. 2-ranked player in the Rolex Rankings. Henderson won the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in June, but hadn’t cracked the top 20 in her two starts since that victory. She missed the cut last week in Arkansas.

Henderson’s wire-to-wire win makes her the second player to do that on Tour this year. Ha Na Jang went wire-to-wire at the Coates Golf Championship. Henderson also became the second Canadaian player to win three times on the LPGA Tour. Lorie Kane had four LPGA wins.

Suzann Pettersen took third at 9 under after an even-par 72.
