Canadian teenager Brooke Henderson snapped one of the most surprising winless streaks in golf on Sunday, notching her first LPGA victory of the year at the Mejier LPGA Classic for Simply Give in Grand Rapids, Michigan, by two strokes over Lexi Thompson and Michelle Wie.
It took just one day for her to win again.
Henderson teamed up with former PGA Champion Keegan Bradley and Champions Tour member/tournament host Billy Andrade to win Monday’s CVS Charity Classic in Barrington, Rhode Island.
- New Format: Monday marked the latest edition of the CVS Charity Classic, an annual charity event run by Brad Faxon and Billy Andrade. This year’s tournament introduced a new format: a one-day tournament with teams of three. Each team was composed of one PGA golfer, one LPGA golfer, and one from the Champions Tour.
- Champions: This year’s champion was the threesome of Keegan Bradley, Brooke Henderson, and Billy Andrade. They shot a 15-under par, giving them a one-stroke victory over the team of Jon Curran, Paula Creamer, and two-time major champion Mark O’Meara. Henderson holed the winning putt.
- Notables: Other notable names playing the Rhode Island event were Billy Horschel, Bill Haas, Tony Finau, Smylie Kaufman, Lexi Thompson, Gerina Piller, Morgan Pressel, Cristie Kerr, Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Brad Faxon, and Jay Haas.
- Charitable: The CVS Charity Classic has been running since 1999, and benefits various charities in the New England area.
