Brooke Henderson has received a special exemption into the Women's British Open at Turnberry. Last week, the 17-year-old Smith Falls, Ont. native was granted Symetra Tour membership by the LPGA Commissioner Michael Whan after she became the third youngest golfer to win in Symetra Tour history following her two-stroke victory at the Four Winds Invitational.

On Monday, Henderson announced she will not be participating in the upcoming Pan Am Games which conflicts with an LPGA event in Ohio.

Henderson has played in seven LPGA events as a non-member and has posted two top-10 finishes along with five top-25 results. She is expected to play in the U.S. Women's Open in July where she finished in a tie for tenth last year.
