Brooke Henderson closed out The Amundi Evian Championship strong on Sunday to win her second career major, aided by three birdies in the final five holes.
Henderson found herself in a six-way tie for first after bogeying the 11th hole, facing true adversity for the first time in days after carrying the lead throughout the majority of the tournament.
“I stayed pretty patient, as patient as I could under the circumstances,” Henderson said. “Going into the back nine, the saying is that majors are won on the back nine on Sunday so I just tried to keep that frame of mind and knew I was still in it if I had a solid back [nine].”
She closed out strong to take sole possession of first with back-to-back birdies on the 14th and 15th holes, ultimately passing Schubert on the final hole with a birdie putt.
