Brooke Henderson had hearts fluttering on Friday as she languished near the cut line at the 2017 CP Women’s Open at the Ottawa Hunt & Golf Club.

Saturday was equally emotional, but in a whole new way.

The crowds roared as the teen from Smiths Falls made eight birdies in her third round to climb the leaderboard. Her closing birdie, completing a course record 63, set the fans into a frenzy.

Henderson met with the media immediately afterward to share her own elation and detail how the day played out inside the ropes.
