She is ranked 14th, while the pair she shares second with are a bit farther back.

The music playing on Golf Channel after the final putt dropped at the LPGA Tour's LOTTE Championship Saturday night was Sia's Unstoppable, a fitting serenade to Canadian champion Brooke Henderson, who breezed to a four-shot victory on windy Ohau. Lindberg, victor of this month's ANA Inspiration, shot a 73, leaving her four off the front.

Seeking her sixth LPGA Tour victory, 20-year-old Canadian Henderson opened with bogey-free rounds of 68 and 66.

Kang, from South Korea, stands at No. 295. She was a two-time Big West Conference champion during her college career at Cal State Fullerton. Maude-Aimee Leblanc of Sherbrooke, Que., tied for 50th at 5 over.

World number one Feng Shanshan, of China, and American Mo Martin are tied for second after shooting 69 and 67 respectively.Pernilla Lindberg, Park Inbee and Lindy Duncan are tied for fourth at six under.

The 2017 LOTTE Championship victor, Cristie Kerr, fell off a bit during Day 2 with a +3.


"Mentally, I was in a great spot this week", Henderson said.

Hawaii's Michelle Wie had a 71 to tie for 11th at 3 under.

The closing hole slip-up left Henderson on nine-under 207 for the tournament, giving encouragement to a crowded field behind her who are all within striking distance. "Now that I'm living on the mainland and come back I get a little surprised by it".

Jutanugarn, from Thailand, secured her fifth top-10 this year but couldn't get the eighth victory of her career.

The $2 million LPGA Tour event ends Saturday.
