- Chris Stevenson/Postmedia News

Brooke Henderson withdrew from the U.S. Women’s Open on Friday to return to Smiths Falls, Ont., because of an illness in the family, said her father, Dave. Henderson, a six-time winner on the LPGA Tour who was in pursuit of her second major title, withdrew before she teed off for the second round of the major tournament at the Shoal Creek Club in Alabama. Brooke Henderson, pictured, tweeted: “Unfortunat­ely, I needed to withdraw from the US Women’s Open for personal reasons and am headed home to be with my family. A second tweet said: “Thanks to the hard-working staff at Shoal Creek and I look forward to another opportunit­y next year in Charleston! @USGA.” Henderson was tied for 44th place heading into the second round on Friday.
