Who is Lurking on Moving Day?The field is wide open heading into moving day at the Meijer LPGA Classic for Simply Give while Brooke Henderson has separated herself narrowly from the field at 16-under par. Chasing from this group is major champion Angela Stanford, who finished tied for fourth in Grand Rapids last year.

Brooke Henderson finds herself in familiar territory atop the leaderboard on the LPGA Tour. The Canadian start carded 16 birdies to a lone bogey over her first two rounds, besting the 36-hole tournament scoring record she set in 2017 by two strokes. Henderson is grouped with Brittany Altomare, who is looking for her first win on the LPGA Tour, and third-year member Annie Park. Altomare shot her season-best 65 in the second round to put herself in contention. Park closed birdie-eagle before play was suspended in the second round due to darkness.
