The windy conditions at the Legends on the Niagara Battlefield course couldn’t cool the red-hot Brooke Henderson at a Canadian Women’s Tour event in Niagara Falls, Ont.
Henderson, fresh off her tie for 10th at the U.S. Women’s Open. is tied with Stephanie Connelly of Fleming Island, Fla. after both shot three-under 69s to sit atop the leaderboard after the first round.
Henderson’s bogey-free round was highlighted by an eagle on the par five 11th and an opening three-under 33 front-nine.
“I started my second hole with an eagle on the par five, so that sort of got things going,” Henderson, 16, said.
Connelly carded four birdies to close out her back nine.
“I started out really consistent, I was making a lot of pars,” Connelly said. “I haven’t played in a Canadian LPGA event in a couple of years, but I would love to play in the Canadian Pacific Women’s Open.”
