LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Skechers Performance, a division of SKECHERS USA, Inc. (NYSX:SKX), celebrates golf pro Brooke Henderson‘s win at the New Zealand Women’s Open on Monday, October 2, 2017. The win marks the Skechers Performance elite athlete’s second LGPA Tour win of the season and the fifth of her career. Henderson led by four shots after six holes on Sunday when play of the final round was suspended until Monday due to severe weather.
“I’m just so happy. To be able to play this well on this golf course really gives me a lot of confidence going forward.” said Henderson. “The conditions were really tough and I could not have done this without my whole team behind me, especially my Skechers Performance GO GOLF shoes, which gave me the stability I needed to stay focused and perform.”
Henderson, a native of Canada, has quickly become a prominent face of women’s golf since turning professional in December 2014. She won her first LGPA Tour event in 2015 at the Cambria Portland Classic, a title she would defend with her second career win in 2016. She then went on to become the second youngest player to capture a major championship with her win at the 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship. In 2016, Brooke also represented Canada at the 2016 Olympic games in Brazil, where she tied for seventh place.
“We’re fortunate to have Brooke on the Skechers Performance team and celebrate this win with her and all of her fans,” said Michael Greenberg, Skechers President, “Brooke’s relentless dedication to perfecting her game is an inspiration to us all and we’re proud to have been part of this amazing achievement so early in her exciting career.”
Henderson joined the Skechers Performance team in 2016. She is outfitted in Skechers GO GOLF footwear and apparel on tour and has been featured in ongoing marketing campaigns for the brand.
