A new junior locker room in her name also was built in the a year ago, displaying pictures from some of Henderson's junior championships.

"I think this game is such an awesome sport", the 20-year-old golf star was saying on Monday as she chatted with the media at the Shaw Charity Classic Women's Day at Calgary's Canyon Meadows Golf and Country Club.

"I thought I did a great job previous year in Ottawa of kind of engaging more with the crowd and just feeding off their energy", said Henderson, who jumped to eighth Monday in the latest Rolex world rankings - up six spots from 14th last week.

Henderson, mobbed by friends and family-including her father, Dave, unable to resist dousing his daughter in champagne-allowed herself to raise her arms in victory. "I bet you she feels pressure".

"It's incredible, just surreal", Henderson said. "This was probably number one on the tournaments I wanted to win". "My grandfathers have passed away this summer, and I really think they were helping me today". Brooke is such a terrific role model for girls and young women in this country. "I was just really excited and kind of nervous that I didn't actually win it and that I had to go out and play (Monday)".

The Canadian Open victory was Henderson's seventh tournament title on the LPGA tour.

Germany's Ifo Business Confidence Improves In August
The business climate index is seen rising to 101.8 in August from 101.7 a month ago. The companies were once again more satisfied with their current business situation.

"Stepping up on the first tee on Thursday I didn't expect that many people to be there in Regina and they were just with me all four rounds and they just seemed to grow every minute." says Henderson. This was like the first time ever that I've played my absolute best in front of the hometown crowd and on home soil. She lost her other grandfather, Clem Henderson, on August 5 at the age of 85. They were so close together. It was very hard, but my family is very close and very strong so I feel like we helped each other a lot.

"Over the last month or so, I think I've been playing my best golf I have in a really long time".

To add to the drama of the finish, Henderson's group that included Yin and Amy Yang, was put on the slow play clock on the 16th hole and told to speed up. She's captured six titles including the KPMG PGA Women's Championship, a major.

"When I looked back [Sunday night] and realized she was the first to win the Canadian Juvenile Championship, the Canadian Junior Championship, the Canadian Womens' Amateur and the Canadian Open and being the only one to do that is definitely historic".

After the weekend in Regina, she moved up to No. 8 overall on the LPGA's world rankings. "I feel like winning some major championships would be incredible". Mentally, I feel like I'm in a really good spot as well.
