Brooke Henderson’s LPGA major debut has to be considered a serious success.

The 15-year-old from Smiths Falls carded an impressive 1-under 71 in the opening round of U.S. Women’s Open Thursday at Sebonack Golf Club in Southampton, N.Y.

With golfers still on the course, Henderson sat just inside the top 20. The top 60 and ties after the second round make the cut.
