Brooke M. Henderson won the prestigious LPGA Tournament of Champions in Orlando on Sunday. The Canadian managed to stay in front almost flawlessly.
At the age of 25, she finished her workweek with a total score of 272 (-16). The Ontarian had three birdies and just one bogey on the final day of competition. She played rounds of 67, 66, 69 and 70 respectively.
Henderson’s last win dates back to July 24, 2022 in The Evian Championship. It therefore adds a 13th career win in the LPGA. The golfer had never won the first tournament of the year, which brings together the champions of the past two years on the LPGA Tour.
Henderson’s closest pursuers on the fairways at Lake Nona Golf & Country Club, Sweden’s Maja Stark and England’s Charley Hull, hit the ball four times more than the Maple Leaf representative. Stark, who had a difficult start to the championship, used a good day to secure second place in the table. For his part, Hull committed a double bogey on the sixth hole that put him at a serious disadvantage.
