Congrats Brooke Henderson – Major Winner!

brooke-henderson18 year old Canadian LPGA player Brooke Henderson is now officially a star on the ladies’ Tour.

After winning her first Tour title last year at the age of 17, she yesterday beat Lydia Ko to win her 2nd title and obviously, her first major, the KPMG Womens’s PGA Championship.

Here are some highlights from her RD2:


From Tim Booth at the Toronto Star:

Henderson won her first major title Sunday, beating top-ranked Lydia Ko with a birdie on the first hole of a playoff to win the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship after overcoming a three-shot deficit on the back nine.

The 18-year-old from Smiths Falls, Ont., ranked No. 4 in the world, closed with a bogey-free 6-under 65 — the best round of the week at Sahalee Country Club — to match Ko at 6-under 278. Ko finished with a 67.

Brooke Henderson – Major Winner At 18!

Beating the awesome Lydia Ko in a playoff?

Not bad, considering this:

Henderson became the second-youngest winner in a major championship, with Ko the youngest last year in the Evian Championship in France.

Henderson also is the second Canadian woman to win a major championship, following Sandra Post’s victory in the 1968 event, and is projected to jump from fourth to second in the world on Monday. Her first victory came last year in Portland, Oregon.

Congrats, Brooke!  Looking forward to many more moments like this watching LPGA Golf!

    Canada is still on a roll.

    There was Moe Norman, Jason Zuback, Jamie Sadlowski, DJ Watts, and now Brooke.

      Take my name from that list and I agree whole-heartedly, Laser – a class group. Don’t forget Knudson and Wier!

    Brooke reminds me of Paula Creamer when she broke onto the scene. A stone cold winner! Ice water in the veins…Nerves? Nah, not yesterday…probably not for a long time to come….This could be a big rivalry moving forward, somethingto re-ignite women’s golf!

      Agreed, nice to see that closing mentality versus the “don’t lose it” frame of mind.
