Winds were gusting on Friday at Ko Olina Golf Club, causing the toughest scoring conditions so far of the three days of the Lotte Championship.

Last year’s Lotte Championship winner Brooke Henderson moved into a tie for first place after her round came to a close. The Canadian 21 year old shot a three under 69. She will be hoping to go back to back tomorrow.

Henderson will have to fend off 20-year-old american Nelly Korda who is the other player atop the leaderboard. She was one under for her round. The windy conditions really made a couple strokes under par a good score on Friday. Korda will try to become the second 20 year old to win the Lotte.

2016 Lotte Champion Minjee Lee from Australia finds herself tied for third place at 13 under par. She had a round of 70 Friday afternoon, playing in the final group. 

The leader entering round three was Eun Hee Ji. She is tied with Lee for third place after day three.
