Brooke Henderson claimed her second career major this past weekend at The Amundi Evian Championship. She held off fellow AJGA alumnae Sophia Schubert, who finished one shot off the lead.
Henderson previously won the 2016 KPMG Women's PGA Championship, becoming the event's youngest winner. With the win this past weekend, she jumped to No. 6 in the Rolex Women's World Golf Rankings.
Brooke started the tournament with a pair of 7-under-par 64 during round one and round two. On moving day, she followed up with a 3-under-par 68 to start the final round with a two-shot lead. After starting the final round with a bogey on the par-4 No. 1, more trouble struck on the par-4 No. 6. Henderson made a double bogey, her first of the tournament. She followed up with a birdie on the par-5 No. 7. After another bogey on the par-4 No. 11, Henderson needed to make some birdies to Schubert, who fired a final round score of 3-under-par 68. Brooke made two birdies on the par-3 No. 14 and the par-5 No. 15. She was tied with Schubert heading into the last hole, the par-5 No. 18. Henderson needed to make a birdie there to win the tournament by one. She drained her 12-foot putt and became the first Canadian golfer to win multiple majors. Brooke finished the tournament with a four-day total of 17-under-par 267.
Henderson played in multiple AJGA events as a junior and had two wins during her time. She won the 2011 Genesis Junior at White Beeches and the 2012 Ravenwood Junior Championship.
AJGA alumnus David Kocher secured his second win on the Korn Ferry Tour at the Price Cutter Charity Championship. Kocher broke the 72-hole scoring record for the tournament with his victory this past weekend. His first Korn Ferry Tour win was at the 2020 El Bosque Mexico Championship by INNOVA.
In the first round, Kocher shot a career-low round of 9-under-par 63. His round consisted of 10 birdies and one bogey. He followed his career-low round with a 6-under-par 66 in round two. Kocher's third round contained eight birdies and one bogey, which gave him a round total of 7-under-par 65. David saved his cleanest round for the final day, where he shot a 6-under-par 66 with six birdies and no bogeys. Runner-up finisher Kevin Yu was six shots behind David, who ultimately finished the tournament at 28-under-par 260.
David played in AJGA tournaments from 2010 to 2013. His best finish was T6 at the 2013 Brian Harman Junior Championship.
