- Henderson is a player who sticks with what works, using a driver and fairway woods that have been replace in the PING line-up twice since being released in 2017. The Canadian has made some changes however, changing up her driver shaft in 2022 that measures 46 inches to accommodate her gripping down the club. Henderson also updating her wedge models and hybrid, while she is yet another Tour player to remain faithful to the i210 irons.
- PING has had a big year on the LPGA Tour, with the brand’ Tour Staff winning three of the four completed majors on the top women’s circuit with one to be played at the AIG Women’s Open in two weeks. Henderson’s second major title also the third in 2022 to be won with the player’s cavity back designed i210 iron model.
- Henderson’s equipment is representative of another trend in professional golf, with 24-year-old using a graphite shaft in her putter. Her mallet head fitting with the graphite shaft offered in the company’s milled PLD models.
Signing to play TaylorMade’s TP5x golf ball in January this year, Henderson now has two LPGA Tour wins since making the switch to the five piece model that is the firmer of the brand’s premium models.
QUOTE: “In 2016 winning the first major changed my life. My world ranking shot up and I just received a ton more attention from fans and media. You know, it also made me feel like I really belonged out here and that I could contend for big, major championships and compete against the best in the world, which is an amazing feeling. It has been a long time, and getting off to a fast start early this week, it just felt great to be at the top of the leaderboard at a major. I just tried to take that excitement as far as I could.” – Brooke Henderson.
