Brooke won the Canadian Women’s Amateur in 2013 and finished runner-up at the 2014 U.S Women’s Amateur. While still an amateur, she won three events on the CN Canadian Women’s Tour and finished tied for 10th place in the U.S. Women’s Open at age 16. She won numerous amateur tournaments and was the top-ranked woman amateur golfer in the world before turning professional in December 2014.

In 2015, Brooke set a tournament record with her 36-hole score at the LPGA Tour’s Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic in April. Her second round 65 (−7) gave her 135 (−9), breaking the record set by Stacy Lewis in 2014 by three shots. Brooke finished third, one stroke behind Lydia Ko, the playoff winner, and runner-up Morgan Pressel.

At age 17, Brooke earned a Symetra Tour card after winning her first event as a professional, the Four Winds Invitational in Indian in June. She shot a final round 66 (−4), Henderson tied for fifth at the U.S. Women’s Open in July.

After Monday-qualifying for the Cambia Portland Classic in Oregon in August, Brooke won the event by eight shots, the largest victory margin on tour since 2012, and became the tour’s third-youngest winner. Henderson was only the second Monday qualifier to win on tour, and the first since 2000. She was also the first Canadian to win on the LPGA Tour since 2001 and was granted immediate LPGA Tour membership.

In 2016, Brooke won her first major championship, the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship at Sahalee Country Club near Seattle. Her final round 65 (−6) propelled her into a tie with top-ranked Lydia Ko, followed by a playoff which Brooke won with a birdie on the first hole. She became the youngest to win that major, the second-youngest in any women’s major, and the first Canadian to win a major in 48 years. It was Brooke’s second tour win, her first as a tour member and it moved her to second in the world rankings. With her win as defending champion at the Cambia Portland Classic in June, Brooke became only the third Canadian to win multiple LPGA events in the same season.

Brooke was a member of the Canadian Olympic Team for the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro placing seventh.

Brooke joined the Mastercard team in February 2017 as one of the newest Mastercard Ambassadors and the first LPGA TOUR Ambassador.
