Paula Reto started her LPGA Tour season with a share of sixth place on Sunday as she carded a closing two-under-par 70 in the Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions in Orlando, Florida.

And, but for a roller-coaster ride of a closing nine, it could have been better. She interspersed her two birdies on that back nine with two bogeys and a double. Had she just made pars there, she could have finished on 12-under for the tournament, and in a share of second. However, her good start with four birdies on the front nine took her to eight-under for the tournament, eight shots behind a dominant Brooke Henderson of Canada. Henderson won by four from Maja Stark of Sweden and Charley Hull of England, with Nelly Korda fourth on 11-under.

It was also a good start to the season for Ashleigh Buhai. She made four birdies and three bogeys in her closing round of one-under-par 71 to reach six-under for the tournament and a share of ninth.
