Canadian teen Brooke Henderson opens 5-shot lead in Portland
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) Canadian teen Brooke Henderson opened a five-stroke lead Saturday in the Cambia Portland Classic, shooting a 7-under 65 at Columbia Edgewater.
The 17-year-old Henderson is trying to join Lydia Ko and Lexi Thompson as the only players to win an LPGA Tour title before turning 18.
On a warm, calm day, Henderson made seven birdies in her bogey-free round. Henderson, who turns 18 in September, tied the tournament 54-hole record of 19-under 198 set by Yani Tseng in 2013.
Morgan Pressel was second after a 65.
