Brooke Henderson

Kapolei, Oahu, Hawaii


Q. Sixth victory on the LPGA Tour. Brooke Henderson, was this tournament in some ways mentally tougher on you than the others?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, you know the wind conditions were incredible. It was so windy every single day. I think Brit and I did such as amazing job of adjusting and calculating yardages.

My sixth win on tour. I'm so happy. This is another dream come true. I really couldn't have done it without my sister, Brit. Watching Pernilla Lindberg win her first major I guess to weeks ago now was a lot of motivation and really inspired me.

I watched the playoff, and the grit and determination that she had, I was like, I can do that, too. So I kind of owe a lot to her this week.

Q. You mentioned that you had to dig deep yesterday. Few doubts crept in. Today a few glimpses of that. How deep did you have to dig?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, you know, I just had to overcome that. Fortunately I was able to do that. There were a couple times I was a little bit shaky with it, but I remembered all the great putting I did the first two days. Just tried to be calm, relaxed, and just see the line and hit it there.

I made quite a few good putts coming in, so I'm happy.

Q. I got a Twitter message from some folks in Ontario. It was an ice storm there. What is about this place you love?
BROOKE HENDERSON: I love it here. It's really amazing. The energy and the fun atmosphere and just how beautiful it is. I have played well here in the past, so I knew coming in I might have a good shot at it.

So I'm really happy about it.

Q. Tee to green might have been best we've seen you play. You feel that way?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Absolutely, yeah. I hit it great this week, even with all the wind and everything. I feel like all year my ball striking has been really awesome. It's just kind of my putting I've been working on.

This week maybe wasn't my best, but I still won.

Q. You sure did, and you showed a lot of grit in doing some. Does this change any of your confidence or goals for the rest of the year?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, absolutely. I would love to win a few more times out here. I know it's extremely tough. Every single week there are so many talented players. I'm just happy that I'm one of them.

Hopefully I can contend a little bit more. The sky is the limit.

Q. And last question. Your parents aren't here this week. How will you celebrate?
BROOKE HENDERSON: Might go swim in the ocean. That sounds pretty fun. I think just enjoy it. Sixth win on tour, it's really amazing, and I really couldn't have done it without Brit.

There has also been that really bad accident that happened a couple weeks ago, I guess last week, in Saskatchewan. I just tried to stay strong for them, and I would like to dedicate this win to them as well.
