California: Brooke Henderson used a brilliant putting game to become a first time major champion Sunday by edging Lydia Ko in a playoff to win the Women`s PGA Championship.

The 18-year-old Canadian claimed the title when she rolled in a short birdie putt on the first playoff hole at the Sahalee Country Club course near Seattle, Washington.

Henderson hit a superb approach on No. 18 as her ball landed about 20 feet inside of Ko`s ball and just three feet from the cup. Ko made par on the playoff hole. 

Henderson`s victory capped a fantastic day for the young guns on the LPGA Tour as the three leaders down the stretch on the final day were all 20 years or younger.
