“I love finding new ways to improve my game, and this tournament offered some great opportunities,” said Brooke Henderson. “I had a lot of breaks go my way on Saturday and it was exciting through that final chip for par on the 18th. I remained focused on my game and was thrilled to move up the leaderboard for the win. I appreciate all my supporters, and it was great to secure this title in L.A.—home to Skechers.”
“Brooke Henderson has always shown great talent, but over the past few years on the Tour, she’s developed an incredible maturity and tenacity—and we’re confident she will continue to break records and thrill her already huge fan base,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “We’re honored that Skechers GO GOLF has been part of her rise and evolution into one of today’s top golfers, and we look forward to seeing all the ways that she’ll continue to grow as a global contender and golf legend.”
Henderson has become a prominent face in women’s golf since turning professional in December 2014. She won her first LPGA Tour event in 2015 at the Cambia Portland Classic, a title she would defend in 2016. She went on to become the second youngest player to capture a major championship with her win at the 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. In 2016, Brooke also represented Canada at the 2016 Olympic games in Brazil, where she tied for seventh place. In 2018, she won the Lotte Championship, and she also became the first Canadian in 45 years to win the national championship at the CP Women’s Open. Now with 10 titles, Henderson owns the record for most professional golf wins by a male or female Canadian, and in 2019 won the ESPY for Best Female Golfer. She is currently ranked #5 in the World Golf Rankings.
Henderson joined the Skechers Performance team in 2016, wears Skechers GO GOLF footwear and apparel on tour and has been featured in ongoing marketing campaigns for the brand. She has competed in recent tournaments wearing Skechers GO GOLF Elite 3™ footwear.
