The beef Brooke Henderson's dad has with the LPGA Tour

June 12, 2015

HARRISON, N.Y. -- As frequently happens in golf, almost all of those who think the LPGA should reverse course and immediately grant 17-year-old Canadian Brooke Henderson an age-limit exemption don't understand the rules. That included Brooke's father, Bruce.

Mr. Henderson let his frustration be heard after his daughter shot a six-under-par 67 Thursday at Westchester C.C. to be one stroke off the lead after the first round of the KPMG Women's PGA Championship, saying she was running out of sponsor's exemptions (non-members are limited to six) after turning pro at the end of 2014 and should be made a member right now given her play in those events in 2015.
