Smiths Falls’ Brooke Henderson continues to take the women’s professional golf world by storm as she is now on the cusp of cracking the top-10 in the Rolex Women’s World Rankings.
The 18-year-old was second in last weekend’s LPGA Tour stop in Florida jumping from #17 in the world all the way up to #11. Last year, as an amateur, Henderson was ranked at #202 in the world.
When asked earlier this week if she feels she can capture the title of world’s number one woman golfer she said “absolutely” adding that it takes an enormous amount of hard work and she’s prepared to make that commitment.
This week Henderson is competing in the Australian Women’s Open.
