Smiths Falls’ Brooke Henderson finished in second place at the LPGA Tour’s Coates Golf Championship in Florida on the weekend two shots behind winner Ha Na Jang.

The 18-year-old Henderson led the tournament after the 16th hole of the final round, but had a three-putt on 17 and slipped into second finishing the event at 9-under par.

She takes home just under $138,000 in winnings.  The tournament was her second in her first full season on the LPGA Tour improving on her 21st place finish last week in the Bahamas.

She is now ranked 17th in the world.
