The months of speculation are over.

Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ontario, the world's #1 ranked amateur will give up that title in favour of professional pursuits.

The seventeen year-old Team Canada member and decorated golfer will join her older sister Brittany as a playing professional.

After an outstanding year where her accomplishments included a top ten finish at the United States Women's Open and the official ranking of #1 amateur, Brooke, her family, and advisors have decided that it's time that she play for pay.

The announcement came Thursday afternoon on the eve of Brooke's last day as a high school student.

Henderson's worldwide management and representation will be handled by IMG. Two agents have been assigned to her including the same agent that represents the Minjee Lee, the player who turned professional in early September and made way for Henderson ascend to the World #1 Amateur ranking.

Among Henderson's supporters will be the Ottawa Senators. The team welcomed the young pro and hockey fan with this video:

Any thoughts on Brooke signing?  Looks like the Senators helped with the video but will not be a sponsor (our story has been updated a few times today).  Golf Canada logo will appear where Sens logo was on the mockup bag, according to my sources.

Audio of her teleconference today is embedded in the story if anybody cares to hear media types and Brooke's own words.
