EVIAN-LES-BAINS, FRANCE — Canada’s Brooke Hen­der­son is two strokes back at the half­way mark of the Evian Cham­pi­onship, the fi­nal ma­jor of the LPGA Tour sea­son. The 21-year-old na­tive of Smiths Falls is tied for sixth at 6 un­der after a 2-un­der 69 on Fri­day. She’s two strokes be­hind Maria Tor­res of Puerto Rico, Mi Hyang Lee of South Korea, and Amer­i­cans Mo Martin and Amy Ol­son. After two birdies in a row on Nos. 4 and 5, Hen­der­son had a bo­gey at No. 6 and a dou­ble bo­gey at No. 7. But she bounced back on the back nine with four birdies and one bo­gey. Tour rookie Tor­res, the first Puerto Ri­can to earn an LPGA card, shot a 2-un­der 69.
