Another 64 boosts Henderson
Brooke Henderson is setting the pace in recordbreaking style at the Evian Championship in Evian-lesBains, France.
The Canadian shot a second straight seven-under 64 to take a three-stroke lead after the second round of the fourth major of the year on Friday.
She is the first player in the history of the U.S. LPGA to begin a major with two rounds of 64 or lower.
And Henderson, who is 14 under for the tournament, thinks there’s a reason for her fast start.
“I’ve been having a lot of crepes in France,” she said, smiling. “To keep the momentum going, I’d better have some more.”
Nelly Korda is the only player in the 132-woman field within four shots of Henderson.
Clarke opens two-shot lead
Chasing a maiden senior major title, Darren Clarke opened a two-shot lead at the Senior British Open after the second round at Gleneagles, Scotland.
Clarke, from Northern Ireland, shot a three-under 67 that left him alone on top of the leaderboard, at eight under. He had two bogeys and a birdie on the front nine but an excellent back nine punctuated by four birdies.
“Around the front nine today, I was so-so,” Clarke said. “My right foot slipped a couple of times but apart from that I played really nicely.”
Scott Parel of the United States was two back after an up and down 68.
Piercy’s 64 tops 3M leaderboard
Scott Piercy shot a sevenunder 64 at TPC Twin Cities in Blaine, Minn., to take a three-stroke lead in the 3M Open.
Piercy had a 13-under 129 total. The four-time PGA Tour winner opened with a 65 on Thursday in windy conditions. Emiliano Grillo was second after a 65.
