In winning her seventh LPGA title, Brooke Henderson used her length to her advantage in winning the CP Women’s Open by four over Angel Yin.
Henderson came into the event in her native Canada fuelled with confidence after a final-round 63 in Indianapolis the week before. Ranked sixth on the LPGA Tour in driving distance, the 5-foot-4 Henderson used her 48-inch Ping G400 driver to great effect again at Wascana Country Club in Saskatchewan, averaging 285 yards off the tee. That allowed Henderson to hit 55 of 72 greens in regulation (76.4 percent), including 15 on Sunday when she made nine birdies against two bogeys during a final-round 65. Henderson also uses Ping’s G400 Stretch 3-wood, which she also has at a longer than normal length at 44.5 inches – about that of a typical driver.
On the greens Henderson needed but 109 putts over the four rounds with her Ping Sigma G Craz-E that she recently put into play at the Ricoh Women’s British Open.
