Patience pays off for Brooke Henderson as she captures first major title

18-year-old Canadian beats world number one Ko to win Women’s PGA Championship

Brooke Henderson’s moment arrived on Sunday at Sahalee Country Club where the Canadian captured her first major title at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship and became the youngest winner in the event’s history.

“Yeah that’s amazing, as well, to think about all of the incredible players that have come before me,” Henderson told the media. “And even I was reading some of the names on this trophy and it’s very, very cool.”

Henderson entered the final round two-back of 54-hole leader Lydia Ko, who was on cruise control throughout much of the day and led by three strokes at one point. But Henderson caught fire on the back nine, draining a putt from long range off the front of the green at the par 5, 11th hole for eagle to pull within one-stroke of Ko. The momentum had shifted.

Another huge birdie putt at the par 3, 17th hole pulled Henderson even with Ko with just one hole to play. Henderson carded the low round of the championship on Sunday with a 65 to tie Ko and force a playoff.

The two returned to the 18th tee for the first hole of sudden death and Henderson stuffed her approach to three feet for birdie and the win.
