NIAGARA FALLS, Ont. - Brooke Henderson kept the momentum from a top-10 finish at the U.S. Women's Open going by winning a Canadian Women's Tour stop.

The 16 year old from Smiths Falls, Ont., fired six birdies in a final round of 6-under 66 Wednesday to claim her second Canadian Women's Tour title. She won the Canadian Women's Tour Quebec stop in 2012 at age 14.

Henderson finished the tournament with a final score of 9-under 135, five strokes ahead of Stephanie Connelly.

"Yesterday I was tied for the lead, so I knew I had to get a good round together," Henderson said. "Coming in through nine I was 3-under and the girl ahead of me was 4-under for the day. I realized I needed to get in gear and was able to get four more birdies on the back nine."

With the win Henderson earned an exemption into the 2014 Canadian Pacific Women's Open, taking place in August at the London Hunt and Country Club in London, Ont.
