  • Bogey trouble in early going destroys Brooke Henderson's shot at LPGA victory

    Chris Zelkovich at Eh Game1 day ago

    The day started off so well for Brooke Henderson.

    The 17-year-old Canadian birdied the first hole at the LPGA North Texas Shootout Sunday to move back into a tie for first place. It looked like there was to be  no repeat of the jitters that knocked her out of first place the Sunday before.

    Then, seemingly in the blink of an eye, it was all over.

    First, she bogeyed the par-5 third after her approach shot settled into a concrete culvert under a street running between holes. She hit her tee shot at the 165-yard fourth hole into the water fronting the green and took a double bogey. Things got only marginally better as  she  put up another bogey on the par-4 fifth.

    Her hopes of becoming the the third LPGA golfer to win a tournament at age 17 and the first Canadian to win on the tour since 2001 were put on hold, especially with eventual winner Inbee Park of South Korea recording a final-round 65 and a host of other contenders under 70 on the day.

    Another bogey on the par-4 ninth gave her an uncharacteristic 40 on the front nine.
