SAMMAMISH, Wash. - Canadian teenager Brooke Henderson carded a hole-in-one and birdied three of her final four holes to post a 4-under 67 and held a two-shot lead after the morning wave in the first round of the LPGA Championship at Sahalee Golf Club on Thursday.
Henderson recorded the first hole-in-one of the tournament when she aced the 152-yard 13th hole with a 7-iron. It was the fourth hole of the day for the fourth-ranked Henderson, who began her round on the 10th hole. Her lone previous career title on the LPGA Tour also came in the Pacific Northwest - an eight-shot victory at the Cambia Portland Classic in 2015.
American Christina Kim and South Korea’s In-Kyung Kim were the only other players to post rounds in the 60s out of the morning wave with both carding 2-under 69’s. Norway’s Suzann Pettersen and South Korea’s Hee Young Park were another shot back at 1-under.
The marquee group of the morning featured top-ranked Lydia Ko from Australia and the top-two ranked Americans, Lexi Thompson and Stacy Lewis. Also starting on the 10th hole, Ko had a pair of birdies to go with two bogeys in an even round of 71.
