MONDAY FINISH

July 16 2018


It might have been a disappointing finish Sunday for Brooke Henderson at the Marathon Classic as she chased her seventh career win, but the good news is her third-place finish moved her up one spot in the Rolex world rankings to 15th.



It also continued a strong season for Henderson, 20, who has seven top-10 finishes this season and 31 in her career.

The $108,279 she earned Sunday also pushed her career earnings to $4,173,180.

Still, she might look back on the 2018 Marathon Classic as one that got away.

Henderson, who entered the final round with a one-shot lead, bogeyed the 15th and 16th holes and failed to birdie the back-to-back par-5s at Highland Meadows Golf Club to miss a playoff by one shot.

Thidapa Suwannapura of Thailand beat American Brittany Lincicome in a playoff to win the tournament after both finished 72 holes tied at 14-under 270.

Henderson birdied the 14th hole to take a one-shot lead. But her putter, which is streaky, failed her on the 15th and 16th holes. She missed from about seven feet on the 15th when her putt hung on the left lip and to the right from about 12 feet on 16.

A 10-footer left over from an escape from a bunker sailed wide left on 17 for birdie and she came up 20 feet short on a pitch on 18 and burned the right edge.

"Sometimes golf is weird. Sometimes it just doesn't go your way, and that was kind of me the last four holes. The rest of the way I played really well, so I'm happy," she said.

It was a tough finish to a tournament that looked like was Henderson's for the taking, but if she keeps giving herself chances with her ball striking (she is now second on the LPGA Tour in greens in regulation at 75.29 percent), the wins are going to come.

FROM THE FRINGE: Rideau View general manager Steve Ducat knows how to host a Media Day. The annual event is a highlight for the Ottawa media and Ducat made it a special occasion when he knocked in his first hole in one on the fourth hole. He used a 7-iron from 159 yards with PostMedia's Don Brennan and John Rodenburg and Sean Simpson of TSN 1200 looking on. Brennan was sure it was in; Ducat thought it was behind the hole. Having their priorities straight, they headed to the quarter-way hut to restock their beverages before arriving at the green to confirm Ducat's dream shot. "DoniB was sure it was in; I was more skeptical," Ducat said. "JR has no depth perception anymore, so he wasn't sure. I thought it might have rolled by the edge of the hole and was sitting behind the pin. Figured we would stop at the 1/4-Way Hut on the way regardless. I needed to see the ball at the bottom of the hole before I would let myself believe it." Now that's how you host a Media Day. ... The Camelot Golf and Country Club won the A Flight of the 2018 OVGA Women's Intersectionals with a 29-28 victory over the defending champions and hosts at Royal Ottawa Golf Club. Gillian Bradshaw and Karianne Lefebvre had six points for the winners. Other members of the winning team were Luce Gougeon, Liette Hebert, Lilian von Klekner-Alt, Dawn Maxwell and Liz McCourt. Hylands finished third with 23 points and the Careton Golf and Yacht Club (four points) finished fourth and will drop down to B and will be replaced by Rivermead, which won the B with 29 points over the Ottawa Hunt and Golf Club (26) and Rideau View (23). ... Lincicome will become the sixth woman to play in a PGA Tour event this week when she tees it up at the Barbasol Championship, the opposite field event with The Open Championship going down at Carnoustie. The other women to play on the PGA Tour are Babe Didrikson Zaharias (seven times in the 1930s and '40s), Shirley Spork (1952), Annika Sorenstam (2003 Colonial), Suzy Whaley (2003 Greater Hartford Open) and Michelle Wie (eight times, mostly in the Sony Open in her home state of Hawaii). Didrikson-Zaharias is the only woman to have made the cut, doing it twice, at the 1945 Phoenix and Tucson Opens. ... It's always a treat for kids at a golf tournament to hang out and maybe get a golf ball or even a glove from a player. I'm guessing by the look on this kid's face he wasn't expecting this from Danny Lee: https://twitter.com/Skratch/status/1015467867574358017 ... The first U.S. Senior Women's Open was a huge success with Laurie Davies winning the tournament which was staged at the brilliant Chicago Golf Club, the oldest 18-hole golf club in America (it was one of the founding clubs of the USGA). It also got a "cool" factor when legendary singer/Margarita blender manufacturer Jimmy Buffet showed up to caddy for his niece, amateur Patricia Ehrhart in a practice round. He was in town for a concert at Wrigley Field. Ehrhart is a former LPGA Tour player who got her amateur status back after leaving the Tour to start a family. ... With The Open back at Carnoustie, what is the over/under on how many Jean van de Veld features you will see? (if you have to ask "why?" I don't even want to know you). This is one of my favourites when he went back to the 18th hole armed only with a putter. https://www.golfchannel.com/video/grill-room-how-find-humor-collapse/
