If all had gone according to plan, Brooke Henderson would be getting her first start of the LPGA Tour season this week.  Even better, her sister would be joining her as well.

Unfortunately both Smiths Falls golfers fell short at Saturday's qualifier for the Coates Championship, the season opener for the tour.  Brooke posted a 72 while sister Brittany turned in a 77.

With only two qualifying spots it took a 69 and a 70 to earn a place in the field.  Brooke's score tied her for third place.

Undeterred both players were spotted at the massive range at Orange County National Golf Club west southwest of Orlando on Monday, grooving their games for the next challenge.

Next up on the LPGA Tour schedule is the Pure Silk Bahamas LPGA Classic (Feb 5-8.) and Brooke has indicated she will try and qualify for it.

Should be fun tomorrow watching the sister's both trying to win the Suncoast event as Brittany has a 2 stroke lead over Brooke and Maria Hjorth.  Hopefully I'll get to see some of their play as I'll be officiating the tournament so can't get involved following them.  Last year Brittany won a Suncoast event and this would be a good jump start for her competing on the Symetra Tour.  I'm sure Brooke will put the peddle to the metal tomorrow as she wants to get this win.   Fun, Fun, Fun!!!!

Great to have them both in the mix.  Spent some time chatting with both last week at PGA Show.  Both fired up to get the season started.

Expecting fireworks tomorrow with 5-time LPGA Tour winner Maria Hjorth also in the mix.
