Shanshan Feng takes early LPGA Tour lead in Hawaii

Brooke Talks to Brittany at LOTTE Championship

A late stumble left Brooke Henderson clinging to a one-shot lead on Friday (April 13) at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship in Hawaii, as she headed into this weekend's final round.

The Canadian followed her opening 68 with a superb six-under-par 66 today to reach 10 under, two clear of American Mo Martin and Chinese world No.1 Shanshan Feng with another two shots back to the rest of the field, including Sweden's recent ANA Inspiration victor Pernilla Lindberg.

Henderson, who won't turn 21 until September, won her sixth LPGA Tour title, leaving her just two short of Sandra Post for most wins by a Canadian player. After a bogey at the 12th, she pushed the gas pedal back down with birdies on the par-5 14th and par-3 16th and ultimately cruises to the finish line as nobody made a run from behind her.

She collected $300,000, giving her almost $500,000 this year and $4 million in her three-year career.

Another to miss the weekend action will be Victorian Su Oh, whose 73 today was an improvement on her opening 77, but only enough to reach six over.

She fashioned a 3-under 69 on Saturday to finish the tournament at 12 under par, four strokes ahead of second-place Inbee Park and Azahara Munoz.

Henderon shot a three-under 69 Saturday to extend her lead to four strokes.

She played with Hawaii's Michelle Wie, the 2014 Lotte champ. But since Feng Shanshan, the current No. 1, finished tied for third at 7 under par, she will maintain the spot.

Henderson and fellow Canadians Alena Sharp, Anne-Catherine Tanguay, Brittany Marchand and Maude-Aimee Leblanc wore green and gold ribbons in memory of those killed in the Saskatchewan bus crash involving the Humboldt Broncos junior hockey team.

"I hit it great this week, even with all the wind and everything", Henderson, 20, told Golf Channel.
