Brooke Henderson fired a bogey-free 67 in Friday’s second round to climb into a tie for 15th at the inaugural Kroger Queen City Championship in Cincinnati and now that she’s more familiar with the course, she hopes to celebrate her 25th birthday with a rise up the leaderboard on Saturday.
At six under through the first two rounds, Henderson goes into the weekend seven shots off the lead, held by Jeongeun Lee6.
“We’ve never played this course before, so coming in a little bit blind there (Thursday), but feel like we have the holes figured out now. The leaders are really going low, so it’ll take two big days to try to catch up,” said Henderson.
“I feel like I have a better feel for the course and where I can kind of hit driver and kind of take advantage and other times where you just layup to a good number and hopefully hit your wedge close,” she said .
Maddie Szeryk and Alena Sharp are both tied for 45th at two under, with Maude-Aimee Leblanc another shot back in a tie for 61st.
The leaderboard is here.
