Brooke Henderson is looking for another top finish on the SunCoast Ladies Tour.  The 17 year-old pro is coming off recent 1st and 3rd place finishes in her last starts on the Florida-based mini-tour.  She is just one stroke back of the lead this week after 36 holes of play.

Brooke added a second straight 70 (-2) to her tally on Wednesday, bringing her to a two round total of 4 under par; one behind the lead held by Morocco’s Maha Haddioui.  She shares 2nd place with Melanie Maetzler of Switzerland.

Lurking not far back of the pair is Brooke’s older sister, Brittany Henderson.  She has turned in rounds of 72 and 72 this week and sits at even par. That puts her in a share of 8th place with the final 18 holes of the tournament at Deltona CC near Orlando scheduled to be played Thursday.

Also in the top twenty with one round to play are Canadians Sabrina Sapone of Montreal (t-18) and Hannah Hellyer of Stirling, Ontario (t-20) .
