Brooke Henderson stumbles late, keeps Meijer LPGA lead

Henderson off to hot start at Meijer Classic

Henderson had seven birdies and three bogeys in the second round, leaving her at 12-under 130 overall. In a logjam one behind her were Lee-Anne Pace of South Africa, Sung Hyun Park and Jenny Shin of South Korea, and Brooke Henderson of Canada. There were a couple of long putts I made, unexpected putts actually. "Hopefully, that just gives me a little bit more motivation going into tomorrow".

The course was reduced to a par 69 after heavy rains turned the par-5 fifth hole into a par 3 because of standing water. "You know, I sometimes overthink things and I'm just trying to have more fun with my caddie in between shots and he does great with just helping me relax out there", she explained.

"I had a really good feeling and made a lot of birdies, a lot of putts". My irons were really good.

"Unfortunately, the two bogeys just came at the end and kind of put a damper on the round, but I'm still leading it looks like by two at this point", Henderson added.

Oh backed up her first round 67 with a 70 to be at five-under par in a share of 20th place, while countrywoman Sarah Jane Smith is a shot further back after back-to-back rounds of 69.

Pace is in position for her best finish of 2017 this week.

Thompson, who has shown unbelievable resilience to bounce back from the heartache and controversy surrounding the four shot penalty she incurred during the final round of the ANA Inspiration, completed a round of 64 to come from two off the 36 hole pace to take the lead into the final round.

Ko's 85-week reign as world No.1 ended earlier this week when Thai golfer Ariya Jutanugarn won the Manulife Classic in Cambridge, Ontario.

The 20-year-old Kiwi, who shot an opening round four-under 65, fell back with a two-over 71 on day two, but was happy with the way she regrouped, particularly after torrential overnight rain.
