Canada narrowly leads Japan at Women’s World Team, U.S. eight back

Canada posted a 14-under-par 274 for a two-stroke lead over surging Japan after two rounds of the 2014 Women’s World Amateur Team Championship (WWATC) at Karuizawa 72 Golf East.

Fueled by a 69 from Brooke Henderson and a 70 from Brittany Marchand, Canada registered a second-round total of 5-under-par 139 at the par-72 Iriyama Course. Their 36-hole total is the tied for the second-lowest in WWATC history.

“Today, we started a little slow,” said Canadian captain Liz Hoffman. “It wasn’t our best day on the front nine but we gained momentum through the round. What I saw in all the players was tremendous determination. They ground it out and stayed focused.”
