The Pelican Women’s Championship presented by DEX Imaging and Konica Minolta is the seventh time that Brooke Henderson has played the weekend in eight starts this season. She is a combined 27-under par on moving day in those tournaments. It’s safe to say she enjoys competing in the third round.
“I love moving day,” said Henderson, who signed for a 4-under par 66 this afternoon and is tied for fifth at 6-under overall. “I feel like after you make the cut, you’re feeling a little bit looser and it’s a great day where you can really make a move up the leaderboard, challenge the leaders. I was trying to do that today. Didn’t get as many [birdies] as I would have liked, but hopefully do something similar tomorrow.”
Henderson heads into the final 18 holes trailing the lead by eight shots. She will look to keep momentum going in her favor and build off a solid effort on day three to give chase to Sei Young Kim.
“It’s definitely inspiring and it’s fun to watch too,” Henderson said of Kim’s play. “When she’s playing her best, she’s attacking pins and making a lot of putts. I got to witness it firsthand at KPMG [Women’s PGA Championship] a few weeks ago when she won her first major. I think she’s doing pretty much the same thing again this week. I’ll try to catch her tomorrow, but definitely fun to watch.”
