Henderson Jumps Out To Early Lead at Canadians

Calgary, Alta. (Golf Canada) – Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ont. leads the 2012 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship after the first round of competition at River Spirit Golf Club in Calgary, Alta.

Team Canada`s Henderson, 14, shot a 4-under par 68 on the day with five birdies and one bogey to lead by a single shot going into the second round, despite strong winds and rain on her final few holes.

“It was pretty windy coming in so [I made] a couple of different club choices from the practice rounds, but overall it was lots of fun out there even though it was pretty windy,” said Henderson, who recently became the youngest known player to win a professional golf tournament after her victory at a CN Canadian Women’s Tour event back in June.

Brogan McKinnon, 17, of Mississauga, Ont. sits a single shot behind Henderson in second place at 3-under par 69, thanks to five birdies and two bogeys on the day. McKinnon finished in a tie for sixth place at the Royale Cup Canadian Women`s Amateur Championship just last week, while Henderson finished in fifth position.

Henderson’s Team Canada teammate Taylor Kim, 17, of Surrey, B.C. scored a 1-under par 71 to finish in third place after the first round of competition, followed by a five-way tie for fourth place. Madison Kapchinsky, 17, of Kelowna, B.C., Rachel Pollock, 18, of Guelph, Ont., Valérie Tanguay, 16, of St-Hyacinthe, Que., and Coquitlam, B.C. natives Jisoo Keel, 16, and Anica Yoo, 18, sit together at even par 72.

Due to her age, Henderson also leads the Juvenile Division (under 17 years old), while Tanguay and Keel sit in a tie for second place.

In the Inter-Provincial Team division, Team Ontario is tied for first place alongside defending champions Team British Columbia. Team Ontario is made up of Henderson, Jenna Hague, 18, of Burlington, Ont., and Stephanie Tucker, 18, of Orangeville, Ont., while Team British Columbia includes Team Canada members Kim, Yoo, and Keel.

This year’s Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Champion will receive an exemption to the 2013 Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship, as well as each of the 2013 CN Canadian Women’s Tour events.

The second round of the 2012 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship resumes tomorrow, Wednesday, August 1st at 7:30am (MDT). Starting times, post-round results and a full field list are available here.

At the conclusion of play on Wednesday, the field will be cut to the low 70 players and ties and Golf Canada will also crown the 2012 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Championship Inter-Provincial team champion.
