Shanshan Feng takes early LPGA Tour lead in Hawaii

BC-GLF-LPGA Tour, 2nd Ld-Writethru, 261 Brooke Henderson takes Lotte Championship leadEds: Adds quote from HendersonBrooke Henderson remained bogey-free to take the second-round lead in the Lotte Championship.

Henderson, 20, was 12-under through the tournament and won by four strokes over Spain's Azahara Munoz.

"Watching Pernilla Lindberg win her first major two weeks ago now, it was actually a lot of motivation and it really inspired me", Henderson described. "Fortunately it didn't rain too hard and it helped with the softness of the course."Henderson is wearing a yellow and green ribbon on her shirt to honour the 16 players and team members killed in the Humboldt Broncos fatal bus crash".

Inbee Park would have replaced Shanshan Feng as world number one with an outright second finish but three putts at both the 17th and 18th saw her finish in a share of 3rd with another former world number one Ariya Jutanugarn and the incumbent Feng. She was two shots back after her fifth birdie of the day, at the 14th, but parred in. I just felt like that every single putt and kind of got a little bit down.

"I'm hitting the ball the best I could remember", Munoz said.

"I think going birdie-birdie to start allowed me to be kind of more aggressive, knowing that I already made up two shots, which is good", Henderson said. "I'm playing really well right now, so I'm quite excited to see that". Lindy Duncan also was 6 under after a 68.

American Daniela Iacobelli (even) came in ninth at 5 under while Thailand's Moriya Jutanugarn (even) claimed 10th at 4 under.

Defending champion Cristie Kerr shot 71 and called the conditions "an average wind for here".
