Seventeen-year-old Titleist golf ball loyalist Brooke Henderson (Pro V1) fired four consecutive rounds in the 60’s to capture the Cambia Portland Classic by eight shots, becoming the third-youngest champion in LPGA Tour history.
Henderson, who turned professional last December, is 17 years, 11 months and six days old.
She closed with a 3-under-par 69 to finish with a 21-under-par 267 victory total, the lowest overall score since the event went from 54 holes to 72 in 2013.
"It was a great week, and I think my game has been at a great level all season" said Henderson. "But this week, well, since Monday, really, it all came together, and I was able to go low."
The eight-stroke win is also the largest margin of victory at the event.
Henderson is just the second player in LPGA Tour history to win after Monday qualifying for an event. As for how Brooke felt about the historic win...
"This is unbelievable, and I'm so excited."
Titleist was the top golf ball choice at the event with 108 players trusting a Pro V1 or Pro V1x golf ball for their success, more than 15 times the nearest competitor with 7.
Henderson topped a leaderboard that included 10 Titleist golf ball loyalists among the 12 players who finished in the top 10 and ties
Titleist golf balls have now been played to win seven times on the 2015 LPGA Tour, more than any other competitor.

RUNNER-UP FINISH AT PGA CHAMPIONSHIP
Titleist Brand Ambassador Jordan Spieth finished in solo second place at the 97th PGA Championship following a closing 4-under-par 68. Spieth posted a 17-under 271 score for the week at Whistling Straits.
