"When you embrace the challenge it calms you down a little bit", Henley, who started the day four strokes behind Kang, said after carding 65 to finish at 20-under-par 268 at the Golf Club of Houston.
The decisive stretch came on the par-5 13th, where Henley and Kang were tied for the lead.

Kang had two birdies on the front nine, but swiftly handed the shot back with bogeys on both occasions and could only par his way in after the turn. He's been putting really well since the last few days, and then I haven't been putting really well, not like the first two rounds. "I'll keep grinding out and working out and hopefully, I can get a chance next time". The next thing you know, I'm four off and got some momentum.
Steve Stricker, who shot a 65 for the lowest round on Sunday, and Bernhard Langer were tied for third, one shot behind the leaders.
