LPGA: A good start for Brooke M. Henderson


Canada's Brooke M. Henderson put herself in an excellent position in the first round of the Evian Championship held Thursday in Évian-les-Bains, France, moving into second place a shot from the head. 

The one who is looking for a second title this year ended her working day with an eagle on the ninth pennant. 

She added six birdies and just one bogey to score 64 (-7), tied with American Nelly Korda and one shot behind the leader, Japan's Ayaka Furue. 

Henderson triumphed at the Shoprite Classic on June 12th. It was her 11th title on the LPGA Tour.

While her compatriot was standing not far from first position, Maude-Aimée Leblanc for her part committed a triple bogey in 12th which was at the origin of a fall to 125th place, at 75 (+4). 

The Quebecer had nevertheless managed two birdies on the nine to go without committing a fault.
