In Gee Chun Withdraws from LOTTE Championship Citing Illness

A late stumble left Brooke Henderson clinging to a one-shot lead on Friday (April 13) at the LPGA Tour Lotte Championship in Hawaii, as she headed into this weekend's final round. A round of even par kept Park tied for third and put her short of victory at the tournament once again.

12 In Gee Chun has withdrawn from the LOTTE Championship before her second round due to an illness. Azahara Munoz of Spain finished runner-up with 8 under par.

New South Welshwoman Rebecca Artis will join the WA pair in round three, although with five birdies in her first two rounds, she won't be thrilled that she's two over after twin rounds of 73. Henderson and sixth-ranked Ariya Jutanugarn (69) were the only other golfers to break 70 on a day that featured rain squalls and winds gusting to 50 kph.

Henderson led by just one heading into the final day. In Hilton Head (United States), Rory Sabbatini battled through the discomfort of a sore back to shoot a seven-under 64 for first-round lead at the RBC Heritage, with world number one Dustin Johnson not far behind.

"I think going birdie-birdie to start allowed me to be kind of more aggressive, knowing that I already made up two shots, which is good", Henderson said. "I kind of got into more trouble, so I went back to my aggressive ways". At the turn, the 2016 Player of the Year was 3 under and three back.
