Love Brooke but cannot see her winning the award.

It will be between Penny and Sid.

I fear Sid will win ( I'm a huge Sid fan) , but IMHO Penny is and should be the clear winner.

Brooke and Andre likely round out the top 4.

My voting would go Penny, Sid, Brooke ,Andre

I see voting going Sid, Penny, Andre, Brooke

At least next year is not an Olympic year, so she should have a good shot at it then if she keeps up her good play.

Lou Marsh went to Penny.

Apparently the last time a teenager won was another swimmer, Elaine Tanner, 50 years ago.

The number of viable choices indicate that it was a good year for Canadian sport.

It's a really nice video. thanks for posting it. I see that picture with the young girls with her and Britt and she seems just like a person that would ask them if she could have her picture taken with them.

I would think that this time next year, they will be again noting the 2017 season for Brooke. She has shown her abilities. Now with experience, she can concentrate on reducing those errors that will result in more victories. Yes, I think she is that good. And there is almost no one that has more drive and will power.

Golf News Now is reporting that Brooke will be playing the Diamond Resorts Invitational on the PGA Tour Champions tour next week at Disney World.
http://www.golfnewsnow.ca/news-now/b...ek-in-florida/

http://www.diamondresortsinvitational.com/

This is a PGA Tour Champions 54 hole event where the Champions and celebrities play separate Modified Stableford tournaments (with separate purses) from the same tees. Groups of three will consist of one Champion and two celebrities. It's part of the "Challenge Season" and does not give out Charles Schwab Cup points.

It will be live on Golf Channel Friday through Sunday afternoons.

It is also open to the public (tickets available on the website and at local Walgreens), in case you happen to be in the neighbourhood.

UPDATE: Brooke will be competing in the Champions Tour event for the $750,000 purse, not the celebrities one (which is for $500,000).
Champions Tour Field (31 players): http://www.pgatour.com/champions/tou...nal/field.html
Other LPGA players include Brittany Lang, Brittany Lincicome and Lexi Thompson.
It's no-cut, so she will be playing on Sunday.

Field:
Armour III, Tommy
Austin, Woody
Broadhurst, Paul
Brooks, Mark
Browne, Olin
Byrum, Tom
Calcavecchia, Mark
Cook, John
Daly, John

23 points and tied for 23rd (four birdies and a double-bogey).
card: http://www.scoring.r2it.com/golf/dri...PlayerID=98267
(3 points for a birdie, 1 for par, 0 for bogey, -2 for double-bogey)

Paired with Brian Urlacher and Sterling Sharpe for Day 2. First tee at 10:27am.
Saturday pairings: https://cmsprod.diamondresorts.com/s...E-SATURDAY.pdf

Woody Austin (43 points) is going to be hard to catch, but she is not out of the running for a top-10 spot with some good play on the weekend. The players at T8 have 28 points, which is less than 3 birdies ahead of Brooke.

Final three-day score of 73. Tentatively 24th. Didn't win, but beat almost all of the celebrities and certainly didn't embarrass herself against the Champions.

UPDATE: Final position 24th.
