Another talented teen leads LPGA

TEEN Brooke Henderson has taken her second 36 hole LPGA lead in as many weeks after a a six-under 65 Friday in Texas.

BROOKE Henderson has fired a six-under 65 in the North Texas Shootout, giving the 17-year-old Canadian the lead going into the weekend for the second straight week on the LPGA Tour.

Henderson had a bogey-free round to reach eight-under 134 total at Las Colinas, a stroke ahead of 2013 winner Inbee Park and 54-year-old Juli Inkster.

Denied a waiver to the LPGA Tour's minimum-age requirement of 18 last year, Henderson earned the last spot in the field Tuesday in a playoff in the qualifier.

Last week in California in the Swinging Skirts, she led after the second and third rounds, but fell a stroke short of a playoff that Lydia Ko won over Morgan Pressel.

The top-ranked Ko rallied on Friday to push her career-long cuts streak to 51, following her opening 75 with a 68 to make it on the number at one-over 143, leaving the New Zealander tied for 62nd.

Park had a 66, and Inkster shot 69.

Lexi Thompson, Mi Hyang Lee, Hee Young Park and Karine Icher were tied for fourth at 6 under.

Michelle Wie was four strokes back at four under after a 70.

She was seven under through 12 holes, but bogeyed three of the last four holes.

Australia's Karrie Webb shot a three-under 68, moving her to one under for the tournament in a tie for 30th.
