In just over two months, the best women’s golfers in the world will be in Regina to compete at the CP Canadian Women’s Open.
One of those golfers will be Canada’s Brooke Henderson.
The Ottawa native was in Regina Monday to check out the course and take part in some promotional events.
She says the Wascana Golf Course will be a good test for her and her fellow competitors on the LPGA Tour.
“The layout is awesome, and I think I could play really well here. “Henderson said. ” There are some unique things about it that makes the course cool and fun. If the prairie winds come up, that is where the challenge will really present itself.
Henderson, who will turn 21 just after the event ends, says she would love nothing better than to make her 7th LPGA title the Canadian women’s open—an event that is high on her list of priorities because of her nationality, but she admits she has some work to do on her game between now and August 23rd when the first round is played with 92 of the top 100 money-winners on the LPGA Tour this season already confirmed to be here.
“It’s been a little up and down this year, but I feel like my game is in a good spot right now.” Henderson said. “Once I get mentally strong and start hitting the ball right, I will start shooting low scores again.

Henderson hasn’t had a lot to complain about during the 2018 season.
In 14 tournaments this year, Henderson has made the cut in 10 with one victory and five top-ten finishes to earn just over $600 thousand dollars. She would love nothing more than to make her second victory, and seventh all-time on the LPGA Tour in Regina at the Canadian Women’s Open. She says it is her favourite event on the calendar with the reason obviously being her nationality.
The LPGA CP Canadian Women’s Open goes August 23-26 with events planned leading up to the first round. One of those events is the first ever CP Women’s Leadership Summit which will go August 21 at the Hotel Saskatchewan.
That event will bring together like-minded businesswomen from across Canada for a day of networking, empowerment and philanthropy.
The keynote speaker for that event will be Saskatchewan’s own Hayley Wickenheiser.
