Brooke Henderson’s name was not a household name two years ago. However lots can change in two years.
Same could go for 15 year old Hayley Shanks from Brandon who shot 95 today at the Tamarack to become the Junior Women’s Medalist. Shanks felt she played well, her driver and short game were good, but her putter did let her down…“the greens just got faster as the day went along”. Hayley has now been in the Tamarack for 5 years and plans to play for as long as she can.
Henderson a mentor of sorts for Shanks as she hopes one day to aspire to her levels of success. “ She started really young and has done so much for female golf” said Shanks.
When we asked her what are the long term goals and she said “love to be able to play NCAA one day".
At this pace I am sure when she will have plenty of schools to pick from in the next few years.
