Immediately following her victory, the 17 year old Canadian petitioned the LPGA for a waiver of its rule requiring tour members to be at least 18 years of age. LPGA commissioner Michael Whan immediately granted the request.

Henderson is trying to gain LPGA membership for 2016 without having to go to Q-School this winter.
This will give her 2 additional ways to achieve that goal. She can accomplish this by:
1- Winning an LPGA event
2- Finishing with the equivalent or better of the 40th place player on the 2015 money list at season's end. She would currently rank #20 on the LPGA money list.
3- Finish in the top 10 of the Symetra Tour money list. Her $22,500 check she received this week will not count. Only earnings going forward. There are still 12 events left on the Symetra Tour schedule.
4- Win 3 Symetra tour events.
Henderson is planning on playing in this week's Symetra Tour's Island Resort Championship, in Harris Michigan.
