Brooke Henderson: Car accident forces Symetra Tour withdraw

Brooke Henderson: Car accident forces Symetra Tour withdraw

Brooke Henderson has withdrawn from this week's Tullymore Classic on the Symetra Tour after she was involved in what she terms a "minor" car accident.

The 17-year-old tweeted Thursday that she was on her way to do laundry when the accident happened.

Henderson won the tour's Four Winds Invitational two weeks ago and then, upon request to the tour, was granted an exemption from the tour's membership floor which requires members to be at least 18 years old.

The Canadian still intends to play in next week's U.S. Women's Open at Lancaster Country Club in Pennsylvania and has been awarded an exemption to the Ricoh Women's British Open, to be played July 30 - Aug. 2 at Trump Turnberry in Scotland.
