Brooke Henderson, the sixth-ranked female player in the world in the Rolex Rankings and winner of nine LPGA titles, re-signed an equipment contract with Ping, the equipment maker announced on Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not revealed.
The 23-year-old Canadian, winner of the 2016 KPMG Women’s PGA Championship, is in the field of this week’s Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
“From the tour staff at Ping who fit me into the game’s best clubs, to the great teams at Ping Canada who’ve supported me since my earliest junior days, being treated like family has contributed to my success for sure,” Henderson said in a media release announcing her new contract. “Because I have the backing of so many people, and I’m playing clubs that bring out the best in my game, I give myself an opportunity to play well every week. I’m really happy to pursue more victories with Ping and build on all that we’ve accomplished together.”
Ping has listed on its website that Henderson plays a full bag of 14 of the company’s clubs: G400 driver and two fairway woods, a G400 hybrid, i210 irons (5-UW), two Glide Forged wedges and a Sigma 2 putter.

“Brooke is the pride of Canada, and I can tell you we are very proud of her in the United States for her winning track record, her competitive fire, and how she represents the game and our brand with such class and positive energy,” Ping President John K. Solheim said in the media release. “Since she burst onto the scene with an eight-shot win her rookie year, she’s never let up, putting together four consecutive multiple-win seasons, a mark of consistency few can match. We’re thrilled she’ll continue representing Ping; in turn, we will continue to surround her with the support she needs to achieve her goals.”
