Brooke Henderson goes into the weekend at the U.S. Women’s Open tied for 10th at three under, five shots off the lead at Trump National in Bedminster, N.J.
“(The course is) definitely a lot softer, a lot of rain the last two days. It played a lot different than it did in the practice rounds and (Thursday),” said Henderson.
“I feel like we – my sister (caddie Brittany) and I – we adjusted really well to that. We attacked maybe a little bit more. We weren’t as afraid of those run-off areas as I was previous, just because I knew it was holding a little bit better,” she said.￼
Henderson finished Friday’s second round with a one-under 71. With two birdies on the day, her lone bogey of the tournament thus far came on the par four 13th hole.
“I’m a few shots back. Hopefully, I can make that up quickly over the next two days and put myself in contention on Sunday,” she said.
Henderson will be the lone Canadian playing the weekend as both Alena Sharp and amateur Maddie Szeryk, who got in as an alternate, missed the cut.
