Global News Toronto recently took to the road and headed to Smith Falls, Ont. to spend some time with Team Canada player Brooke Henderson.
At only 14, Henderson became the youngest player to win a professional event earlier this year after capturing the CN Women’s Tour stop in Beloeil, Que. in June after posting rounds of 67,72.
The victory earned the now no.37 ranked women's amateur in the world an exemption into the CN Canadian Women’s Open event in August, making her the youngest player to ever compete in the tournament.
Rob Leth, Global News reporter, followed Henderson during an afternoon of practice at Smith Falls Golf and Country Club. He captured some candid answers from Brooke on what it was like to win a professional event as an amateur and also found out her thoughts on competing at this year’s women’s open.
