PORTLAND, Ore. — The previous half year on the LPGA Tour has left Esther Henseleit with the impression that she has been going nowhere fast at all. Because of this, she had the impression that she was absolutely soaring on Friday at the AmazingCre Portland Classic.
Henseleit, who is 23 years old and from Germany, shot an 8-under 64 to move into a tie for the lead with Lilia Vu heading into the weekend of the competition. Henseleit made 10 birdie putts on her way to the score.
Columbia The fairways at Edgewater are narrow and tree-lined, and the greens are undulating but firm. Henseleit maintained the status quo by keeping the ball in play and allowing her putter to handle the rest of the work.
According to Henseleit, “I had some simple putts and hit the line and they went in, so that worked good today.” [Citation needed] “I had several opportunities, but they weren’t all easy wins. I did not have a single birdie that I could tap in.”
Vu, who was a previous No. 1 amateur golfer and was currently attending UCLA, started her round with four birdies and an eagle on the first seven holes, and then she played steadily on the back nine to shoot a 66 and win the tournament.
Vu and Henseleit were at 10-under 134.
In Thailand in March, Henseleit started the tournament with a score of 63 and ended up tied for 12th. That was the most memorable moment of her year. She started skipping cuts and spending an excessive amount of time on Friday wondering if she would be able to go early for the weekend.
“Since Thailand, I’ve been through some really hard patches, so it’s fantastic to have something positive heading your way. I’m just going to try to have fun with it, make the most of the situation, and give myself as many chances as I can “Henseleit stated.
She expressed her impression that “it simply felt like nothing really came together.” “I have been putting in a lot of effort, and I have had the impression that every facet of my game has been getting better; nonetheless, I have been unable to really pull the scores together. It’s a wonderful thing that today simply kind of fell into place without me having to exert too much effort to make it happen.”
Now she is going to be stuck in a bottleneck for the next 36 holes. There were eighteen players remaining, and the gap between them was four shots; several of the competitors were competing for the first time.
They were one shot better than the Spanish golfer Carlota Ciganda, who recorded a score of 66. Another previous No. 1 amateur, Andrea Lee, was part of the large group that tied for eighth place at 8 under 136. Maja Stark of Sweden, one of the hottest players on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, was also a part of this group.
Stark, who attended Oklahoma State University, is a four-time winner on the Ladies European Tour. One of her victories was the ISPS Handa World Invitational in Northern Ireland, which was also co-sanctioned by the LPGA Tour.
She is currently ranked No. 47 in the women’s global standings and No. 54 in the Race to CME Globe. She is vying for one of the sixty available berths in the season-ending event that will take place in Florida in November.
After beginning her season on the Epson Tour for developing players, Lee had a decent finish in Hawaii, which marked the beginning of her comeback from a slump.
She replaced Inbee Park as an alternate for the U.S. Women’s Open and finished in a tie for 15th place, and now she is on track to finish in the top 60 and qualify for the CME Group Tour Championship. Her most recent accomplishment was reaching the semifinals of the Bank of Hope LPGA Match Play in Las Vegas.
Nelly Korda, who needs a victory to regain to No. 1 in the world, never got much going and dropped strokes on both of her final holes for a score of 73, which left her six shots behind the leader.
