I watched 15-year-old Brooke Henderson at the Manulife LPGA event on Friday and wrote about it in Global Golf Post. It is a fascinating story — one that raises the question of how do parents make the right decisions for their kids who are excelling and when is the right time to make a move. It also comes as Jordan Spieth wins at the age of 19 and follows Lydia Ko winning the Canadian Open last year at 15. This one was fun to write.
