The whirlwind summer of Brooke Henderson continued with the long trek from Pinehurst, N.C., to Niagara Falls, Ont., for a practice round prior to Tuesday’s start to the Canadian Women’s Tour event at Legends on the Niagara.
The 16-year-old from Smiths Falls, Ont., had plenty to reflect on after her tie for 10th at the U.S. Women’s Open, where she was low amateur. That vaulted her into 180th on the world rankings.
Or maybe she was more focused on her upcoming high school English and biology exams.
One subject that isn’t dominating her thoughts, at least not yet, is the possibility of turning pro after such an impressive performance on a tough course such as Pinehurst No. 2. The subject has come up with her family, however.
“I am still committed (verbally) to the University of Florida right now, but we’ll just see,” said Henderson on Monday.
“I mean, the LPGA is definitely my goal and I hope to have a successful career out there sometime soon. I don’t know when that is right now — if it’s this year, next year or four years (after university),” said Henderson.
