PRIDDIS, Alberta -- Brooke Henderson is the face of Canadian golf. Cheap Australia Jerseys . Lydia Ko is a big hit, too -- and every bit as comfortable.I feel when I come to Canada, it feels a lot like New Zealand, feels a lot like home, Ko said Wednesday, a day before the start of play in the Canadian Pacific Womens Open.

The 18-year-old Henderson had a large crowd for her pro-am round at Priddis Greens.Having Canadians and people from all over the world kind of celebrate this national championship is really cool, Henderson said.

My gallery kind of grew throughout the day, and as I finished, that was probably the longest autograph session that Ive ever had.The top-ranked Ko has won the event three of the last four years, the first two as an amateur.

I truly respect the way she plays in that shes accepting of what happens and she moves past it. Ive had enough time to play with her to see shes got all kinds of game. She swings a very big driver a very long way and Im extremely proud of her.Ko was second last week in the Rio Olympics, five strokes behind winner Inbee Park.Its definitely a quick turnaround, but this is one of our best tournaments on our tour schedule, so even the girls that were in Rio I think were all excited to be here, Ko said. Last week, the course was a little bit like sand belt with a little bit of British flair. This is a bit more traditional. ... Its firm and fast. Last week, we were wearing shorts. This week, were wearing sweaters.Henderson tied for seventh in Rio.Rio was kind of just a sixth major on the LPGA Tour, Henderson said. Of course, there was lots of other things going on. ... It was cool, but the end of the day it was just four rounds of golf, regular stroke play individual that we do every single week, playing against the same players we play against every week.Ko and Henderson are on opposite sides of the draw. Ko will open play Thursday morning on the 10th tee with Jessica Korda and Sei Young Kim, and Henderson will start on No. 1 in the afternoon with Gerina Piller and Amy Yang.Kane, at 51, is making her record-tying 26th straight appearance in the event. The four-time LPGA Tour winner was inducted into the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame on Tuesday night.Im proud of myself. Ive accomplished some things that I never thought would have been possible, Kane said. To think in 20 years what I have achieved -- the four wins? It took me a long time to win the first one and then the next three came pretty quickly after that.Kane will match the tournament record for consecutive starts set by Hollis Stacy.Suzann Pettersen won the 2009 tournament at Priddis Greens.The tour will remain in Canada next week for the Manulife LPGA Classic in Cambridge, Ontario, with Pettersen the defending champion.
