Brooke Henderson looked for awhile as if she might not make it to the weekend, but suddenly, put it into overdrive to make a considerable climb up the leaderboard at the ANA Inspiration in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
Henderson put up three bogeys against two birdies on her front nine, but reeled off three consecutive birdies at the beginning of her back nine before adding another on her final hole.
Henderson rose from a tie for 60th to a tie for 25th at two under at the midway point of the LPGA Tour’s first major of the season. She’s five shots off the lead going into the weekend at Mission Hills.
Hamilton’s Alena Sharp goes into Saturday’s third round in a tie for 40th after a two-over 74 on Friday that left her at even par over the first two rounds.
The leaderboard is here.
