Although Brooke Henderson hasn’t found the winner’s circle yet in 2017, she’s rounding into form at a good time of year, and leads by two heading into the weekend at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give after a second round 4-under-par 66.
Henderson rattled off four-straight birdies in the middle of her round to open up a four-shot lead; however, she ended with two-straight bogeys to drop back to the field.
The 19-year-old said No.17 is just a ‘tough hole’ and she didn’t get the result she had hoped, making bogey. She ended up trying to ‘chase’ a birdie on No.18 to get it back, and let emotion get into her psyche.
“Two bogeys to finish, but that just gives me a little more motivation going into tomorrow,” she said.”
70 players made the cut of 2-under 140. Due to potential inclement weather on Saturday, players will tee off split tees beginning at 10:14 a.m. The final groups will tee off at 12:15 p.m.
