Henderson won the Evian, his second Grand Slam, and Ciganda finished third


the canadian Brooke M Hendersoncurrently number 10 in the world ranking, knew how to get out of the rut of the first holes to sign the final card with 71 shots (par), and accumulated 267 (-17), and take his second ‘great’, the Evian Championship (France), with a stroke advantage over the American Sophia Schubertand there are two more than a quintet of players, including Spaniards Charlotte Cigandawho signed off on a great tournament.

Six years have passed to see how Henderson, 24, achieved his second ‘great’, since the first date from PGA Championship 2016. She achieved it in a more complicated and painful way than expected, since she started the day with two strokes ahead of South Korean So Yeon Ryu, 51st in the world, and the American Sophia Schubert, th -283 in the ranking. It must include a birdie on the 18th to be certified.

And it is that the beginning of Henderson’s Sunday tour is not exactly to put in the album of good memories of the Canadian. A bogey at 1 and a double bogey at 6 produced his live moments of some anxiety and worry as he found himself knocked out of the lead. He managed a birdie at the 7th, but a fresh bogey at the 11th gave him concern, and that dropped him to third place.

But the native of Smiths Falls (Ontario) brought out his caste, his good golf and reacted in time: two bides on 14 and 15 put him back in the lead (-16); yes, Schubert shared the surprise. even without one great tournament under his belt as a professional, as he only had one Symetra. It was all decided on the 18th hole, where the American, who was in the previous game, had a birdie putt of about 3 meters to get to -17, He missed and Henderson took a breather, many meters behind.

Unsurprisingly Henderson didn’t get off to a good start on the 18th, his ball way off the fairway. Perhaps seeing that Schubert missed the -17 gave him enough composure to make an impressive second shot and an even better third, leaving the ball eight feet from the hole. He didn’t disappoint with his putt and made the birdie that, with -17, gave him his second major, his twelfth professional win. Worth for the rest of the tournament, but very difficult.

Excellent in third place shared by Spaniard Carlota Ciganda, with -15 in the accumulation, and signed the fourth card with 68 shots (-3), one more than signed in each of the previous three days. Navarrese, who had three birdies and was unbeaten in this final round, reached the 18th to launch a birdie that would have given him, at the time, the co-leadership. But it was a very long putt, almost impossible. He managed to leave the ball close to the hole and secured par for the hole. It’s a pity the few ‘putts’ left in the week, as his game on the green was one of the best in the tournament.

Along with Carlota, England’s Hull Charley, South Korea’s Kim Hyo Joo, New Zealand’s Lydia Ko and Japan’s Saigo Mao finished in third place.
