Isn't a weekend in the Hamptons usually reserved for the well-established?

A Smiths Falls, Ont. teenager too young to drive a golf cart paid no mind to status when she booked a room for a couple of nights in this posh area of Long Island Friday evening.

Bumping out such big-name veterans as Suzann Pettersen, Michelle Wie and Yani Tseng, 15-year old amateur Brooke Henderson made a tremendous statement as she survived the cut at the U.S. Women's Open to earn a Saturday and Sunday's worth of invaluable experience at an LPGA major.
