Six-time LPGA Tour winner Brooke Henderson reminded us all that she is a force to reckon with as she scooped top spot at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship held at the end of last month. The 20-year old who has already competed at various tournaments in the past managed to equal Sung Hyun Park and So Yeon Ryu’s 6-Under tally at the Championship and scoop top honours together with the two Korean stars in the second round of the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
Brooke Henderson’s Tournament So Far
Brooke Henderson started the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in the worst possible way by her standards. She was one off the pace going into the second-round trailing behind the two Koreans but managed to overturn the results and vault into a tie with the two during the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. During the championship, Henderson carded a 1-under 71. Henderson was crowned the champion in this same tournament in 2016 and last year she was the runner-up. In all, Henderson has finished in the top five in all the five years that she has competed in the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
In Her Own Words
Brooke Henderson had some words to share with the media after her impressive performance. She said that it was kind of a rollercoaster during the second round, as at one time she found herself in a comfortable lead but at times, she found herself having to battle stiff competition, particularly from the two Koreans. However, she stated that she was happy with her overall performance and is quite happy going into upcoming tournaments. She attributed her bad patches of performances to the weather saying she was affected by the windy conditions that prevailed throughout the day.
Other Canadians who participated in the event tournament include Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Alena Sharp, Brittany Marchand and Maude-Aimee Leblanc.
