Brooke M. Henderson on mission at the Evian Championship


Canada's Brooke M. Henderson seems to have her sights set on the Evian Championship crown, as she took the lead by delivering a second straight 64 card on Friday at Évian-les-Bains , France.

Henderson has been amazing since the start of this tournament on the LPGA Tour. She took seven more shots from par to pass the leader after one day, Japan's Ayaka Furue. Even better, the Ontarian now holds a three-stroke lead over second place.

“It's a good feeling to start a major tournament so well, launched the Ontarian to the website of the LPGA. I feel like it's been a long time since I had experienced such a departure. I'm really looking forward to the weekend after two such good days.”

Henderson finished the second round on a high with three birdies in a row, dropping his cumulative card to -14.< /p>

American Nelly Korda is her closest pursuer. An eagle on the last pennant allowed her to play 67 (-4) and post a score of -11.

South Koreans Sei Young Kim (65) and So Yeon Ryu (66) share the third level, at -9.

Quebecer Maude-Aimee Leblanc (+4) could not recover from a hazardous start to the tournament and was victim of the ax after hitting the ball 71 times Friday.
