Brooke Henderson

Belleair, Florida, USA

Pelican Golf Club

Quick Quotes

Q. Here with Brooke Henderson. Capped of the week with a 5-under 65. Four rounds in the 60s. How are you feeling about your game?

BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, it was a really nice week. Nice to finish off well today. Made a lot of birdies, and it got really tough there on the back nine, strong gusts of wind.

Happy to shoot 5-under today and climb up the leaderboard, and hopefully it's a good sign for next week.

Q. What were some of the highlights out there today? I know you had five or six birdies on the card.

BROOKE HENDERSON: Yeah, it's always fun to make a lot birdies. I feel like Brit and I were working really well today judging the conditions, and also we finally made some putts, and that felt really great.

But this course is awesome and I'm really excited to come back next year.

Q. Dad is back in town. Working with him I'm sure this week. How much has it meant to have him back around and helping you out?

BROOKE HENDERSON: It's great. I have definitely missed my coach in person for the last two years. Virtual is great, but in person is so much better. So it's nice to have him back. I feel like it just gives a lot of confidence for Brit and I.

Yeah, I'm just excited that they're here. Hopefully, like I said, have another good week next week.

Q. Was there anything he was seeing more in person than he was via FaceTime or Zoom?

BROOKE HENDERSON: I think just strategy on the course. You know, just giving me confidence on a couple holes where I was a little bit unsure how to play for certain pin positions, et cetera.

He just gave me, Hit it right here. That just little bit extra calmed some nerves coming down the stretch. Makes it a little bit easier to play.

Q. It's been a crazy busy season for a lot of reasons, but heading into the last week of the year, how is your energy level? How are you feeling?

BROOKE HENDERSON: It's actually kind of nice because I had about a month off after Founders Cup, so I feel well rested and ready to go.

Also next week is kind of like a home game for me. Get to sleep in my own bed, which is great. So I'm really looking forward to it.

Q. What positives, lessons are you taking away from this week to CME with a chance at $1.5 million.

BROOKE HENDERSON: It's just so much fun. Although I wasn't right in contention this week, to climb up the leaderboard on the weekend, it's just so much fun. I love being in that position and I love the crowds that were out this week. So much fun.

I feel like over the last two years I've really missed the energy and the adrenaline of the crowd. To have it back is amazing feeling. Hopefully over the next few years - saw this tournament is extended - will just grow the crowds and get better every year.

Q. What are you looking forward to at CME next week?

BROOKE HENDERSON: Definitely the fans and definitely sleeping in my own bed. What an amazing opportunity it is to play for that purse and for the first place prize of $1.5 million. That can change a lot of lives.

So hopefully go and play well and see what happens.
