Canadian Brooke Henderson takes lead at Lotte Championship

Canadian Brooke Henderson takes lead at Lotte Championship

After a first-up round of 76, the 20-year-old was firmly on the back foot at the Ko Olina Golf Club and after a 71 and a 70 she then entered Sunday's (NZ time) final round 10 shots off the pace of Canadian leader Brooke Henderson, in a tie for 32nd.

12 In Gee Chun has withdrawn from the LOTTE Championship before her second round due to an illness.

It was Munoz's best finish in more than four years. This one came with a $300,000 paycheck, bringing her career earnings to nearly $4 million. Henderson and sixth-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (69) were the only other golfers to break 70 on a day that featured rain squalls and winds gusting to 30 miles per hour.

Pernilla Lindberg and Inbee Park were back together again on the leaderboard at 6 under, two weeks after Lindberg beat Park on the eighth extra hole in the major ANA Inspiration.

Henderson came into the week ranked 14th and in a comfort zone. That stretched to five at the turn Friday, before putting problems brought the field back into it. But since Feng Shanshan, the current No. 1, finished tied for third at 7 under par, she will maintain the spot.

Two-goal substitute Giroud inspires Chelsea turnaround
It doesn't matter that we won the game 3-2, it was important to see the right reaction and fight in the eyes of my players. I have two good strikers and I try to make the best decision at the start of the game or during the game".

Henderson, however, didn't give Park a chance, extending her lead to two shots with a birdie on the par-five 14th.

"I didn't play bad, but I think I missed about three to four putts that were less than 1 meter long", Park said after the round. "I kind of got into more trouble, so I went back to my aggressive ways".

Ji Eun-hee was the second-best finisher among Korean golfers at the Lotte Championships, finishing tied for 11th at 3 under par along with KLPGA Tour golfer Kim Ji-hyun who played under invitation.

Henderson and fellow Canadians Alena Sharp, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Brittany Marchand and Maude-Aimee Leblanc wore green and gold ribbons in memory of those killed in the Saskatchewan bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.
