Canada’s Brooke Henderson has the lead after the first round of the Meijer LPGA Classic.

The native of Smiths Falls, Ont., completed the suspended first round at 8-under 64 on Thursday, giving her a one-stroke lead on Ashleigh Buhai of South Africa.

Just before play was halted because of darkness Friday night, Henderson got a hole-in-one on her sixth hole (the par-3 15th after starting on No. 10) to go to 4 under. She followed that up with four more birdies on Friday morning.

The second round of the 72-hole event also was scheduled to be played on Friday.

The 21-year-old Henderson, who won this event in 2017, is looking for a Canadian record (on the PGA or LPGA Tours) ninth career title.

Alena Sharp of Hamilton is three off the pace after carding a 67, while Quebec City’s Anne-Catherine Tanguay had a 69.
