Henderson’s 8th LPGA Title
Ties Record for Most Ever by a Canadian

MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Skechers elite golfer Brooke Henderson swung her way to victory at the
Lotte Championship on Saturday, winning for the second straight year at
the Ko Olina Golf Club in Kapolei, Hawaii. Competing in Skechers GO
GOLF, Henderson won by four shots, finishing sixteen under par to
achieve her eighth LPGA title, tying for the most wins by a Canadian in
the LPGA or PGA Tours.


“It’s thrilling to reach this amazing milestone and defend my title here
at Lotte – and it’s an unbelievable honor to be in the same conversation
with Sandra Post, Mike Weir and George Knudson; they’ve set the standard
for golfing in Canada,” said Brooke Henderson of her legendary fellow
Canadians – all eight-time winners. “It is so surreal, and I’m
incredibly proud to accomplish this honor at this point in my career.
The conditions were tough, but I felt good out there, and I was thankful
to Skechers for again supporting me with a stable shoe in Skechers GO
GOLF Elite.”

“We continue to be extremely proud of Brooke, and that she’s earned her
eighth victory and has tied for the most LPGA or PGA wins by Canadian
golfers,” said Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Brooke’s
extensive fanbase loves watching her determination and focus through
each match, so having her on our team competing in Skechers GO GOLF is a
major asset to the collection and the entire Skechers brand.”

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 Cambria Portland Classic, a title she would defend with her
second career win in 2016. She then 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 was the first Canadian to win the Lotte Championship, and
she also became the first Canadian in 45 years to win the national
championship at the CP Women’s Open. Henderson’s 2019 win at Lotte
Championship marks her eighth LPGA title, and puts her in the record
books with eight-time champions Sandra Post (LPGA), Mike Weir (PGA) and
George Knudson (PGA).

Henderson joined the Skechers Performance team in 2016. She wears
Skechers GO GOLF footwear and apparel on tour and has been featured in
ongoing marketing campaigns for the brand.
