LOS ANGELES: Brooke Henderson used a brilliant putting game to become a first-time major champion on Sunday (Monday in Manila), edging world No. 1 Lydia Ko in a playoff to capture the Women’s PGA Championship. The 18-year-old Canadian claimed the title when she rolled in a short birdie putt on the first playoff hole at the Sa-halee Country Club course near Seattle, Washington. Henderson said the win feels like a dream. “I don’t know whether I thought it would come true,” she said. “I’m just speechless. I don’t know what’s going on in my head right now.” Henderson hit a superb approach on the No. 18 playoff hole as her ball landed about 20 feet inside of Ko’s ball and just three feet from the cup. Ko, 19, settled for par on the playoff hole. “I thought I needed to do something special here because I didn’t want to go to extra [playoff]holes, especially against her,” Henderson said of her second shot in the playoff. “I hit a pretty solid seven iron and it rolled out pretty nicely and I was able to make the putt.” Henderson’s victory capped a fantastic day for the young guns on the LPGA Tour… Read full this story
