South Africa's Sabbatini has a two-stroke lead over a group of four Americans at five-under 66, including Matt Kuchar and Billy Horschel, while Johnson fashioned four consecutive birdies at one stage of his opening round for a 69.

Nogueira was scoreless, and had just one assist, but that assist couldn't have come at a better time. Toronto earned the series split against the Wizards with a 102-95 victory in Washington on March 2.

That left Park two shots behind Henderson going into the seventh, but she fell further behind as she struggled to make birdies.

Five strokes ahead early on the back nine, Henderson four-putted the par-3 16th for a double bogey and bogeyed the par-4 18th. "With this putting, I can't win". The longest putt Henderson made on Thursday was a 21-foot birdie on the par-three eighth hole.

On the west coast, Vancouver can expect to see off and on rain showers into Monday, but no heavy rainfall is anticipated. Northeast winds will gust to near 60 km/h on Saturday leading to local blowing snow reducing visibilities at times.

"I watched the playoff and the grit and determination that she had, I was like, 'I can do that too.' I kind of owe a lot to her this week". She is the first golfer from China — female or male — to reach No. 1 in the world rankings.

Henderson - whose only round over par was a 73 on Friday - entered Saturday's final round with a 1-stroke lead over Mo Martin, who dropped out of contention with a 78 on Saturday. Both came up a few holes short. Park has already won a tournament, the Bank of Hope Founders Cup in March, and with great finishes, she is ranked first in the Race to CME Globe points standing.

I'm not going to go there, there's no point. "But I've got no loyalties to them any more so hopefully we'll have a good weekend". Wood said: "I had a great time there, I think it's a great club".

An uncharacteristic closing calamity has cost Minjee Lee a prominent spot on the LPGA Tour's Lotte Championship leaderboard in Hawaii. She played the first 11 holes Saturday in 2 under to carve out a three-shot advantage, then faltered again.
