LPGA: Brooke M. Henderson at the top of world golf


Canada's Brooke M. Henderson climbed to No. 1 in the LPGA World Rankings on Monday. 

The 2022 season finisher at third tier of the international chess board reached the top of the charts by virtue of their victory last Sunday in the framework of the LPGA Tournament of Champions. It was the first competition of the 2023 campaign and brought together all the female golfers who lifted a trophy the previous year. The Ontarian was in control throughout the competition and won with four shots.

Henderson therefore won his 13th career title on the prestigious professional circuit, which represents a peak in Canadian golf history.

“It's really exciting. I always try to get a few wins during the season,” Henderson told NBC Sports after his win.

“To be able to get one in my first tournament makes me allows less pressure on the shoulders. I love playing on the LPGA Tour and playing against the best players in the world every week. It's exciting to be in the race and fantastic to lift a trophy.”
