Thompson leads by one over a myriad of golfers including Sung Hyun Park, Jenny Shin, Lee-Anne Pace, and overnight leader Brooke Henderson.

Canada's Brooke Henderson has won her 4th LPGA Tour title with a two-shot win over Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie at the US$2 million Meijer LPGA Classic at the Blythefield Country Club in Grand Rapids in MI.

"It was just like the ideal day", the Smiths Falls, Ont., native said. “My dad is my coach, hes a great father to both my sister (caddie Brittany) and I, and hes one of our best friends. "But this week seems to be a turnaround week and, hopefully, I can just finish strong the next two days".

"I made that long one from off the green on 12 that wasn't really expected and that kind of gave me some energy", she said.

Henderson's finished two shots clear of Americans Michelle Wie and Lexi Thompson.

The ACCC published a request for tender on the AusTender website on May 30 for an independent testing provider for the program. Fixed line data downloads increased 52 per cent between June 2015 and June 2016 (ACCC Telecommunications Report 2015-16).

Henderson, who led after the first two rounds, was simply solid in a final round that did not include a bogey.

Henderson, meanwhile, will look to win just her third major title after winning the KPMG Women's PGA Championship and the Cambia Portland Classic past year. I was hitting the ball really well and some putts were dropping, which (was) kind of a change from the past few weeks. So to get my fourth win is super exciting and Im just excited for the rest of the summer now.”.

Henderson had seven birdies and three bogeys at Blythefield Country Club on Friday. She birdied Nos. 7 and 8, while Thompson faltered. "To shoot 3 under, and I don't think I had any bogeys either, which was great".

The Indian, who was the Rookie of the Year on Ladies European Tour after wins on the Hero Women's Indian Open and Qatar Ladies Open, has been finding her feet slowly but steadily on the world's biggest golf tour for women.

Due to flooding the fifth hole was played as a par 3 instead of a par 5 with Ko picking up one of her birdies at the hole. There were a couple of long putts I made, unexpected putts actually. It is what it is.

India eventually collapsed to 158 all out as they suffered their heaviest defeat in terms of runs in 129 ODIs against Pakistan . Hardik Pandya cheered India fans in a capacity crowd as he hit three sixes off successive balls to bring up a dashing fifty.

The uneven play comes on the LPGA Tour, where former teenage stars often settle in to be merely good, rather than great. "I tried to dial it back and was able to make the last two".

It was the second consecutive year that Thompson led or shared the lead after Saturday and dealt with a string of bogeys on Sunday to take her out of the picture.

"Could have been really close to being a great shot", Henderson said. “The wind just started blowing and it was just interesting. "I feel my game is in a really good place".

Australia's Su Oh fired the equal best round of the day, a five-under 64, to finish the tournament in a tie for fourth at 14-under-par.

Thompson, who lost in a playoff last week, fell short of a victory for the second straight week.
