CHONBURI, THAILAND‚ÄĒCanada‚Äôs Brooke Henderson is three shots behind leader Eun-Hee Ji of South Korea after shooting a 6-under 66 in the opening round of Honda LPGA Thailand on Thursday.
The bogey-free day marked Henderson‚Äôs first competitive round since the season-opening Tournament of Champions in Florida ended on Jan. 20. The 21-year-old native of Smiths Falls, Ont., sat out the last two events because of illness.
‚ÄúYou know, I felt look I did a lot of things really well today,‚ÄĚ Henderson said. ‚ÄúMaybe just adjust the game plan a little bit going into tomorrow. But I‚Äôm just going to rest and hopefully come out tomorrow and get a couple birdies early.‚ÄĚ
Henderson is in a four-way tie for fifth. Ji has a two-shot lead on Minjee Lee of Australia, Danielle Kang of the United States and Jenny Shin of South Korea.
