BROOKE HENDERSON’S BACK-NINE CHARGE LEAVES HER WITH
GREAT CHANCE TO DEFEND CP WOMEN’S OPEN TITLE
– News and notes from Magna Golf Club for Saturday, August 24th –
AURORA, Ont. – After a sizzling Saturday 65 that included a back-nine 29, Brooke Henderson is just two shots back heading into the final round of the CP Women’s Open at Magna Golf Club, as she looks to defend her title.
Henderson will be in Sunday’s final group with South Korea’s Jin Young Ko, the No.1 player in the world, and 54-hole leader Nicole Broch Larsen.
Henderson had a tough start to her third round, as the 2018 CP Women’s Open champion was 2-over through six holes. She made three birdies in a row on holes 8 thru 10 to get back into red figures on moving day before going full steam ahead after receiving a high five from a young fan.
“It was a little bit of a struggle there,” Henderson said. “I felt like I was playing decent golf. Just wasn’t really going my way. Then on the seventh green a little boy gave me a high five and then he continued the rest of the round. At the time he did kind of cheer me up a little bit. I think I tried to get back to even on the front nine. Going to the eighth tee, I was trying to just make two birdies, get it back to even and then see if I could go really low on the back, which I did.”
