Brooke Henderson, Professional Golfer
Brooke Henderson’s passion for golf came at an early age, and she has come a long way since picking up her first club at three. Dubbed Smiths Falls’ gift to the golfing world, Brooke has more professional titles than any other Canadian in history. Her win in June 2019 pushed her past the trio of George Knudson, Sandra Post and Mike Weir as the winningest Canadian golfer on the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) or Ladies Professional Golf Association (LPGA) tours. Off the course, Brooke was voted as a winner of the inaugural People’s Choice Award by Canada’s Sports Hall of Fame, and her peers on the LPGA Tour voted for her as the winner of The Founders Award, given to someone who embodies the spirit of the LPGA Tour.
