Congratulations to 2011 and 2013 Spirit Player, Brooke Henderson (Canada) on her remarkable finish at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and her first major championship.
At Sahalee Country Club, 18-year-old Henderson defeated 19-year-old Lydia Ko at the first hole of a sudden-death playoff that ended a day of dazzling, often-brilliant golf. After both players went without a bogey in Sunday’s final round and finished 72 holes at 6-under 278, Henderson, playing in her sixth major championship as a professional, stiffed a 155-yard approach to 3 feet and rolled in the birdie putt. A moment earlier, Ko had missed her birdie putt from 15 feet.
Congratulations, Brooke from all of us at The Spirit International!
