Henderson leads by two in Portland
Yahoo News - 9 months
(Reuters) - World number two Brooke Henderson suffered a double bogey on the back nine but the defending champion still finished two strokes ahead of the chasing pack after the third round of the Portland Classic on Saturday. The Canadian, who won her first LPGA title by eight shots at the Columbia Edgewater Country Club last year, carded a two-under-par 70 for a 13-under 203 total and a two-shot lead over Mariajo Uribe (71). Henderson, 18, began the third round tied at the top with Suzann Pettersen but the Norwegian carded a sloppy 74 to fall four shots off the pace and into a tie for third with Austin Ernst (69).

Sad Koch laments 'gimmegate' incident at Solheim Cup
Yahoo News - over 1 year
Europe's captain Carin Koch is still unhappy about the incident that marred the final day of the Solheim Cup in September and the Swede said on Tuesday she might handle 'gimmegate' differently if she had the chance again. Tempers at the biennial team event, the women's equivalent of the Ryder Cup, flared as then-world number eight Suzann Pettersen of Norway refused to concede a 16-inch putt to Alison Lee and the American picked her ball up on the 17th green. "It's easy to say now going back," Koch told Sky Sports, referring to a question about how she could have handled the incident better.
