After consecutive 70s to open the AIG Women’s Open at Muirfield, Brooke Henderson went one better in Saturday’s third round, shooting a two-under 69.
Henderson had consecutive birdies on the par three fourth and par five fifth, but a bogey on the eighth moved her back to one under on the day before a birdie on 12 restored her to two under. She parred her way in.
Henderson goes into Sunday’s final round in a tie for ninth. At four under, she’s 10 shots behind leader Ashleigh Buhai, who fired a 64 on Saturday and leads by five shots.
