Brooke Henderson opened the PGA Women’s Championship of Canada with a course record, seven-under 65 that included a hole in one on the 17th at the FireRock Golf Club in Komoka, Ont.
“My caddie told me it was over the back and I kind of panicked for a few minutes, but when I went up there I checked and and there it was — it was a great shot,” said Henderson, 16.
Henderson leads by two strokes over Stephanie Connelly of Fleming Island, Fla. Three shots back heading into Thursday’s final round is three-time champion Alena Sharp of Hamilton.
“I’ve had a great summer and it’s definitely been a huge confidence booster,” said Henderson. “I’m looking forward to the future and want to use these experiences on the LPGA Tour when I finally get out there some day.”
