Most players have to wait to leave the 18th hole to celebrate their victory with their families. However, Brooke merely needs to turn to her side to hug her sister after all her spectacular wins. The former champion has been traveling the world playing tournaments along with her sister Brittany Henderson. A decent golfer herself, Brittany has carried the golf star’s bag for many of her victories. Former Quebec junior champion, Brittany has received most of her fame because of her superstar sister Brooke.

Out of her 12 LPGA Tour victories, Brooke has had Brittany by her side for 11 of them. And that includes a major championship as well. While fans often consider siblings in the same field as rivals, these two have been the perfect team for years. “I definitely couldn’t do this without her,” Brooke once said after winning the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship in 2016.

Other than carrying her bag, Brittany also plays a major role in helping her sister during the game. Whenever Brooke gets to a consuming turn during tournaments, she finds her sister there to support her to make the right choices. “Brit was really key, reminding me that ‘we’re still in it, just relax and hit good shots. Try to hit fairways, try to hit greens. Just keep it simple.’” Brooke explained.
