Brooke Henderson Surges at LPGA Drive On Championship

Languishing in 51st place after round one of the LPGA Drive On Championship. and facing an event with only three rounds, Brooke Henderson needed to make a move on Friday. She did just that.

The ten-time LPGA tournament winner burst up the leaderboard courtesy of a back nine charge. Staring the round on the back side at Crown Colony Golf & Country Club in Fort Myers, Florida, the 24 year-old Canadian was one over par for the day through 8 holes.

The next ten holes, however, were a different story. Henderson tapped the course for six birdies in that stretch, to finish the day with a 67 (-5).

Now -6 overall she’ll need another big day on Saturday for a chance at a victory.

She spoke after round two about her play and how she is starting to figure the golf course out.
