CP Women's Open - Brooke Makes History - Oh! Canada

Whether you were there at Wascana Country Club watching Brooke Henderson make history or maybe following along on the Golf Channel. Heck even if you were just following along on social media today was a bit of a big deal for Canadian Golf as Brooke Henderson was the first time since 1973, a Canadian has won our country’s national golf championship.

In front of hordes of fans screaming her name and singing O Canada, Brooke Henderson shot a final-round 65 and earned a decisive four-stroke win over Angel Yin at Regina’s Wascana Country Club.

Lifted all week by the adoring Canadian fans, Henderson carded birdies at five of her closing eight holes. While the win was at hand, Henderson didn’t feel it was truly hers until she put her approach at No. 18 to just 3 feet, ultimately sealing the victory.

IN HER WORDS – HENDERSON ON WHAT IT MEANS TO WIN IN CANADA


“I definitely feel like it was meant to be this week. I knew it wasn't over until basically 18, but I just had that good feeling. It's just amazing and a dream come true.”
