Brooke M. Henderson regained her touch on Friday at the CME Group LPGA Championship, as she completed the second round with a 68 (-4) card in Naples, Fla.
This performance is timely for the 23-year-old Canadian, who struggled on her last outings. She had also concluded the first round with a score of 73 (+1) after committing a triple bug at the start of the course.
This time around Henderson was a lot stronger. Although she recorded two bogueys, she still managed an eagle and four birdies.
This result allowed him to jump from the 45th to the 16th echelon. With a cumulative of 141 (-3), she is now six strokes behind the leader.
Jin Young Ko grabbed the lead, finishing his day with a mark of 67 (-5). The South Korean showed remarkable consistency, wedging five birdies and playing par at every other hole. After two rounds, she has a 135 (-9) record and is one step ahead of her closest rivals.
Her compatriot Sei Young Kim and American Lexi Thompson are tied for second with 136 (-8) records. Kim played 69 (-3) on Friday while Thompson recorded a score of 712 (-1).
New Zealander Lydia Ko had the best performance of the day, completing the course in 65 (-7) strokes. She thus came closer to four strokes of the head, going from 59th to 11th.
For her part, Ontarian Alena Sharp had a difficult day which she concluded with a card of 76 (+4) after registering six bogueys and two birdies. She is currently 63rd, 14 strokes from the top.
