Henderson Makes History Becoming the First Canadian in 45 Years to Win the LPGA CP Women’s Open
On the course with the world’s top golfers and surrounded by the cheers of fellow countrymen, Brooke Henderson won the LPGA CP Women’s Open, becoming the first Canadian to win the title in 45 years, and the second Canadian to win in the event’s history. Competing in Skechers GO GOLF footwear and apparel, Henderson won her seventh LPGA title by four shots with a finish 21 under par at Wascana Country Club in Regina, Saskatchewan.
“It felt like a dream to get a big win at a Canadian tournament,” said Brooke Henderson. “This was truly a Canadian-style game. It was like playing in all four seasons. I was ready though and I had the stability I needed with my Skechers GO GOLF Elite V.2 shoes. It just felt so perfect, and I feel honored to win this for my country. I’m the national champion!”
“What an amazing win for Brooke—in her home country! We couldn’t be more proud of her, and we’re excited to be with her on this journey as she continues to win in what’s shaping up to be an incredible season so early in her career,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “She’s an inspiration every time she’s on the course and her aspirational determination is an asset to the Skechers GO GOLF collection as well as her fans who watch her wearing our footwear and apparel through each new success.”
Henderson has become a prominent face of women’s golf since turning professional in December 2014. She won her first LGPA Tour event in 2015 at the Cambria Portland Classic, a title she would defend with her second career win in 2016. She then went on to become the second youngest player to capture a major championship with her win at the 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. In 2016, Brooke also represented Canada at the 2016 Olympic games in Brazil, where she tied for seventh place. In April she was the first Canadian to win the Lotte Championship and is now a single win short of tying Sandra Post for most wins by a Canadian in LPGA history.
Henderson joined the Skechers Performance team in 2016. She wears Skechers GO GOLF footwear and apparel on tour and has been featured in ongoing marketing campaigns for the brand.
