After missing out on the top ten in her three previous starts, Brooke Henderson finished in third place at the Volvik Championship on Sunday.

The Canadian carded a final round 68 to finish in a tie for third place alongside Jessica Korda, six strokes behind eventual winner Ariya Jutanugarn and one adrift of Christina Kim.

Henderson finished in the top ten in eight successive events earlier this season, but prior to this weekend's tournament, missed out in the last three tournaments.

"Overall it was a solid week," Henderson told the LPGA after the tournament.

"It's always nice to see your name up near the top of the leaderboard and it's been a few weeks since that happened for me, so today was definitely a solid day for me. 

"I missed some opportunities, but I also made up for a couple here on the back nine, so overall I'm happy."

Next up for the world number six is the ShopRite LPGA Classic at the Stockton Seaview Hotel and Golf Club in Galloway, New Jersey.

There the field will include several former winners, including Anna Nordqvist (2015), Stacy Lewis (2014, 2012), Karrie Webb (2013), Ai Miyazato (2010) and Angela Stanford (2003).

"There's definitely things I have to work on going into next week. Some silly mistakes early in the week and even today a couple, but overall I'm very happy with how things are going and hopefully just be able to finish it off in the near future," added Henderson.
