The one who is looking for a second title this year ended her working day with an eagle on the ninth flag.
She added six birdies and just one bogey to score 64 (-7), tied with American Nelly Korda and one shot behind the leader, Japan's Ayaka Furue.
Henderson triumphed at the Shoprite Classic on June 12. It was his 11th title on the LPGA Tour.
While her compatriot was standing not far from first position, Maude-Aimée Leblanc for her part committed a triple bogey in 12th which was at the origin of a fall to 125th place, at 75 ( 4).
The Quebecer had however managed two birdies on the nine to go without committing a fault.
