Moriya three behind, Henderson keeps lead at Meijer Classic

Henderson off to hot start at Meijer Classic

Henderson has a solid lead over South Korean Hur Mi-Jung (66), Spaniard Carlota Ciganda (64) and Lexi Thompson of the USA in the US$2 million (RM8.55 million) LPGA Tour event. I like the greens.

Thompson won the Kingsmill Championship last month in Virginia for her eighth LPGA Tour title after losing the ANA Inspiration in a playoff after being penalized four strokes for a rules violation reported by a television viewer. She has a 36-hole lead for the first time since late last September in China in the Reignwood LPGA Classic.

"It was just a stupid club coming in", she said.

"On a day like today when you don't know if you're going to have further rain delays or how the course is playing, I think it was really important to hit the fairways and I think that I was doing pretty well out there", Ko said. I was hitting the ball really well and some putts were dropping, which (was) kind of a change from the past few weeks. "Everything seems to be good".

However, Ariya's sister Moriya showed there is more than one champion in the family by scoring a 66 that left her three shots behind Henderson. The Chinese player is trying to complete a MI sweep after winning the LPGA Volvik Championship three weeks ago in Ann Arbor.

Current Rolex rankings leader Ariya Jutanugarn is at 9-under par with seven other players.

Su Oh leads the two Australians who made the cut, the Victorian adding a third round of 65 to move into a share of 18th.

Hur kept bogeys off her scorecard on Friday as she fired her second straight five-under 66.

The back-to-back rounds of 62 give Wise a six-shot lead over Curtis Thompson and Kyoung-Hoon Lee at 16-under 124.

Seth Reeves and John Chin are another shot back of Thompson and Lee at 131.
