Brooke M. Henderson on mission at the Evian Championship

Canadian Brooke M. Henderson appears to have her sights set on the Evian Championship crown, having taken the lead by posting a second straight 64 card on Friday in Évian-les-Bains, France.

Henderson has been amazing since the start of this LPGA Tour tournament. She took seven more shots from par to pass the leader after one day, Japan's Ayaka Furue. Even better, the Ontarian now holds a three-stroke lead over second place.

"It's a good feeling to start a major tournament so well," the Ontarian told the LPGA website. I feel like it's been a long time since I had experienced such a departure. I'm really looking forward to the weekend, after two such good days."

Henderson finished the second round on a high with three birdies in a row, dropping his cumulative card to -14.

American Nelly Korda is her closest pursuer. An eagle on the last pennant allowed him to play 67 (-4) and post a score of -11.

The South Koreans Sei Young Kim (65) and So Yeon Ryu (66) share third place, at -9.

Quebecer Maude-Aimee Leblanc (4) couldn't make up for a hazardous start to the tournament and was hacked after hitting the ball 71 times on Friday.
