Henderson and Lee lead field by one
Brooke Henderson and Mirim Lee carded a 73 and 69 respectively to claim a one-shot lead at the KPMG Women’s PGA Championship.
Henderson and Lee currently sit on two-under and are closely followed by world number one Lydia Ko, Gerina Piller and Brittany Lincicome, who are in a tie for third on one-under.
Meanwhile, defending champion Inbee Park failed to make the cut after she recorded a 79.
Henderson, who was in the lead after the first round, struggled on Friday as she made a birdie and two bogeys on the front nine. She was unable to turn her fortunes around on the back nine as she made a birdie and two more bogeys. Despite her disappointing round, the world number four still found herself in a share of the lead.
Lee surged up the leaderboard courtesy of her round of 69, which began with her making a birdie and a bogey on her front nine. After a mediocre start, the South Korean shifted her game to the next level on her back nine as she made three birdies and a bogey.
Ko, who followed her 71 in the first round with a 70, started her round with a duo of birdies and bogeys on the front nine. Even though the world number one made a solitary birdie on the back nine, it was still enough to keep her in contention.
Piller, who registered a 69, enjoyed a lot of success on the front nine as she made four birdies and a bogey. She was unable to maintain her momentum though as she made two birdies and three bogeys on the back nine.
Lincicome struggled for the most part as she made a birdie and two bogeys on the front nine before starting the back nine with a bogey at the 11th. A hat-trick of birdies from the 13th to 15th saw her remain within touching distance of the leaders.
Meanwhile, Park, who has won the tournament for the last three years, plunged down the leaderboard and did not make the cut after firing an eight-over-par 79, which consisted of a birdie, seven bogeys and a double bogey at the par-four fourth.
