Brooke Talks to Brittany at LOTTE Championship

A two-under 70 final round has seen Kiwi golfer Lydia Ko finish in a three-way tie for 20th at the LPGA Tour's Lotte Championship in Hawaii.

Brooke Henderson shares a light moment with her sister and caddie Brittany during today's second round in Hawaii.

Henderson, who hails from Smith Falls, Ont., shot a 6-under 66 in 15 miles per hour morning wind at Ko Olina Golf Club to get to 10 under.

Henderson, the 20-year-old Canadian ranked 14th in the world, birdied four of her first six holes to surge into the lead in relatively calm morning conditions.

Lee's fellow Ritchie Smith protégé Hannah Green is making another solid run in her LPGA Tour rookie campaign, which already includes three top-20 finishes, including at her first major championship last month.

No one could catch the five-time LPGA Tour victor as the wind gusted to 20 miles per hour later in the day. Martin, the 2014 Women's British Open, had a 67.

Chinese star Feng Shanshan missed the opportunity to make a charge with a two-over-par 74 which left her tied for fifth place on six under, three off the lead, alongside American Lizette Salas. Lindy Duncan also was 6 under after a 68. Defending champion Cristie Kerr also shot 73 and was another shot back.

Henderson - whose only round over par was a 73 on Friday - entered Saturday's final round with a 1-stroke lead over Mo Martin, who dropped out of contention with a 78 on Saturday.
