She liked it so much in round one that she did it again in round two. Canada’s Brooke Henderson added another score of 66 (-7) to her tally of scores at the Reignwood LPGA Classic.

One her first trip to China, the Smiths Falls golfer is looking pretty comfortable as she tours the Pine Valley course in Nanou, Beijing.

Starting the second round one shot off the lead of Ariya Jutanugarn after a bogey free opening round, Henderson had a great amount of confidence and it carried through.

While she did have a bogey on her card in her second lap of the course, the end result left her feeling pretty good about her chances this week.

“Today was awesome,” shared the World’s #4 player. “I got off to an awesome start starting with a birdie on the 1st hole, parred the 2nd, and then had quite a few birdies in a row. I felt like today could be a good day, which is always a good feeling to have. One bogey, which kind of set me back a little bit, but then some more birdies on the back nine to get to 7-under, and 14-under par, which is really nice, especially only two days into the championship and I know I have two more days left. Really looking forward to it. Hopefully have two more 7-under rounds.”
