Brooke Henderson's message to Lydia Ko after edging her in a playoff was perfect

June 13, 2016

As quickly as Brooke Henderson is rising in the official world ranking, she's moving just as fast up the list of most-liked golfers. Following her impressive performance at Sahalee Country Club to claim her first major championship, the 18-year-old phenom showed class beyond her years with this message to the 19-year-old phenom, Lydia Ko, she had just beaten in a playoff.

You can tell Brooke is Canadian, eh?

And if not, how about her ode to her love of hockey with this celebratory pose?

But seriously, the way both players (Again, they're TEENAGERS) handled the pressure and the outcome of the KPMG Women's PGA was terrific. Oh, and the golf was pretty special, too.

Yes, Brooke, we'd love to see you and Lydia battle it out more often in major championships. And fortunately, considering their ages, we're banking on it happening a bunch more in the next decade.
