World Golf Hall of Fame mem­ber An­nika Sorenstam says Canada’s Brooke Hen­der­son is well on her way to be­com­ing one of the top play­ers on the LPGA Tour.

Hen­der­son’s win at the CP Women’s Open in Regina could be just the be­gin­ning, the 72-time win­ner on the LPGA Tour said ahead of the fi­nal ma­jor of the sea­son, the Evian Championship, start­ing Thurs­day in Evian-les-Bains, France. “What Brooke did was an amaz­ing dis­play of golf,” Sorenstam said. “If this con­tin­ues, she will soon be one of the best in the world.”

Sorenstam is a two-time win­ner of the Evian Championship, where Hen­der­son will try to cap off a mem­o­rable year.

“She has got­ten off to a quick start in her young ca­reer,” Sorenstam said of Hen­der­son, who turned 21 on Mon­day. “I am sure there will be many more wins to fol­low.”
