The 20-year-old Henderson from Smiths Falls, Ont., will tee it up at 8:29 a.m. in a group that includes former World No. 1, Lydia Ko, who won her first major title there in 2015. Ko finished second last week, and has yet to secure a win in 2017. (Though the 14-time winner on Tour did just become the fastest player in history to earn $8 million in her LPGA career).
