RYE, N.Y. (AP) Canadian teen Brooke Henderson will play her first LPGA major as a pro in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship.

The tournament on Monday announced the 17-year-old Henderson has received a sponsor's exemption. The major will be played June 11-14 at Westchester Country Club.

Henderson had the 54-hole lead in the Swinging Skirts LPGA Classic two weeks ago at Lake Merced in San Francisco. She wound up third. Henderson has played two other events this year and has earned $161,557, which would make her equal to No. 29 on the LPGA money list.

She isn't an LPGA member because of its minimum age requirement of 18.

Henderson tied for 10th in the U.S. Women's Open at Pinehurst No. 2 last year as an amateur.
