Brooke Henderson won the coveted award for Best Female Golfer but had to watch the award on TV instead of receiving it in person since she was teeing it up this week for the Marathon Classic presented by Dana in Ohio.
Henderson won the award through a fan vote that was held on ESPN’s website.
In June, Henderson became the winningest Canadian golfer of all time with her victory at the Meijer LPGA Classic. This victory was Henderson’s ninth LPGA title and marked the fourth straight year she has won multiple titles in a season.
Henderson posted on Twitter that she was extremely honored to receive the award.
Other nominees in the running were 2018 Rolex Player of the Year, Ariya Jutanugarn, 2018 Louise Suggs Rolex Rookie of the Year, Jin Young Ko and Sung Hyun Park who and took home the ESPY in 2018.
