Henderson, who became the first Canadian to win the national championship in 45 years last season, was far and away the most popular golfer at the LPGA Tour event. But after bogeys on Nos. Despite nearly losing the ball in the brush, Ko chipped it to within 4 feet of the pin, avoiding bogey.

But Henderson was visibly energized after a birdie on the par-3 eighth hole.

"I feel like I'm more confident in this position now than I was two years ago, even though I haven't been here for a while", Broch Larsen said. Then on the seventh green a little boy gave me a high-five and then he continued to do that the rest of the round. "Either way I'll be cheering for the United States of America". "I think if I play like I did on the back nine today, then I have a real shot at it".

Henderson dropped the eagle putt to move back into a tie for third place at 12-under overall.

After a pair of early bogeys, Henderson went on a stunning tear by hitting seven birdies and an eagle over a 10-hole stretch.

World No. 1 Jin Young Ko was one stroke off the lead after the morning wave of the second round of the LPGA Tour's CP Women's Open.

Liu, who went 81-82 during the rounds, knows exactly what she'll remember when she looks back at her record-breaking experience the past two days.

The Smiths Falls, Ont., native was quite prophetic as she rattled off seven birdies.

"He kind of cheered me up a little bit".

"She's world No. 1 for a reason", Henderson said.

Broch Larsen and Ko were in the final pairing for the day and were focused on their own duel, essentially playing a one-on-one match. "To be honest, my putter has been bailing me out a lot this week", she said.

"The course is just a little too long for her to score like she's used to, and it's frustrating for her", Houlding said.

"No bogeys is always great, so that's a good feeling", said Henderson, 21, a nine-time LPGA victor. Next year, the CP Women's Open is being played at Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club, Liu's home course in Vancouver and she would love to get another shot at this championship. She's also the first LPGA player to play a bogey-free, four-round tournament since fellow South Korean Inbee Park did it at the 2015 HSBC Women's World Champions.

She's not going to get ahead of herself, though.

The runaway victor Sunday, Ko called for her groupmate to join her, and the two walked arm-in-arm to a rousing ovation at Magna Golf Club. I was feeling great, and even better than yesterday, I want to say. "At the same time, I feel like if I can make a lot birdies and kind of get the momentum my way, you never know what can happen".

Brooke Henderson watches her tee shot on the first hole during the third round of the CP Women's Open in Aurora, Ontario in Aurora, Ontario, Saturday, Aug. 24, 2019.

Henderson, who turns 22 on September 10, was 2 over through six holes before carding three straight birdies on Nos. She almost birdied the 11th hole too but her 12-foot putt just rolled past the cup.
