Smiths Falls’ Brooke Henderson is now the top women’s amateur golfer in the world.

The 16-year-old slides into the number one position after Australia’s Minjee Lee announced this week she is turning pro.

Henderson was chasing Lee all summer and was closing the gap almost on a weekly basis thanks to an amazing season highlighted by a second-place finish at the U.S. Women’s Amateur and a top-10 finish at the U.S. Open.

Most recently Henderson won the individual title at the Women’s World Amateur Team Championship in Japan at 19-under par, leading Canada to a second-place finish.
