Sparkling Start To Season Continues For Brooke Henderson

Four tournaments into the 2022 LPGA season and Brooke Henderson of Smiths Falls, Ontario does not have much to complain about.

The 24 year-old continued her exemplary play this weekend with a tie for 6th place at the HSBC Women’s World Championship in Singapore.

The Canadian finished play with a bogey-free 67 to leave her at -13 for the week (69-68-71-67), four short of the winning score of Jin Young Ko. This was Ko’s sixth win in her last ten LPGA starts.

An opening nine of -4 had Henderson near the top of the leaderboard early, but the top players were on a similar pace. That ultimately left Brooke short of earning her 11th LPGA title, but still pleased with her performance.

“Yeah, it was a great front nine, I really had it rolling. It was nice to get that eagle on 8. That was really fun,” she commented after the final round.

“And it was fun. I had great playing partners, and we were all playing pretty well. So that always makes it for a fun Sunday afternoon. And just to make a lot of birdies, no bogeys, is really good momentum going into next week.”

Momentum is not something she has been short of this year. After a 2nd place finish at the season-opening Hilton Grand Vacations Tournament of Champions. Brooke followed with a t-6 at the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio and a share of 11th at the LPGA Drive On Championship at Crown Colony.

“It’s been a great 2022 so far,” she commented on her campaign. “I am definitely looking for that win, but I think if I just keep doing the right things, eventually it will come again.”

She added, “I mean, I’ve been hitting it really well the last…since the season started. As long as I can make a few more putts, I think maybe a win is just around the corner.”

With her finish in Singapore, Brooke moved up to 3rd place in the CME Ranking.

She’ll be in the field this week for the Honda LPGA Thailand. She did not play the event last year but finished 6th there in 2019.
