TORONTO — Red-eye flights, pre-tournament qualifiers and last-minute travel plans were often the norm for golfer Brooke Henderson in her first season as a professional.

Canada's Brooke Henderson has won the ShopRite LPGA Classic, securing her 11th LPGA Tour victory.

The 24-year-old entered the final round tied for ninth at 5-under, before hitting a 7-under 64 after the first 18 holes on Sunday to finish tied for first with American Lindsay Weaver-Wright. The Smiths Falls, Ont., native then defeated Weaver-Wright with an eagle in the playoff to secure the title.

It's Henderson's first victory in 2022, and first since winning the Hugel-Air Premia LA Open in April 2021.

"It felt like a long time since my 10th victory, and I've been putting in some work," said Henderson on the green after the win. "Yesterday I actually thought I was too far back coming into today and I just tried to go as low as I could and see what happened, and here we are."

Henderson, the winningest golfer in Canadian history, earned $262,500 with the win, making a total of $882,786 this season and $9,070,013 in her career, according to LPGA.
