Brooke Henderson produced a second successive 64 to surge into the lead at the Evian Championship.

The Canadian world number 10 had been one shot behind overnight leader Ayaka Furue going into the second round.

But Henderson, who won her first major at the Women's PGA Championship aged 18 in 2016, maintained her momentum with another seven-under-par effort.

She made the turn in 33 before going five under for the back nine, carding three consecutive birdies to close an outstanding round.

At 14 under par, Henderson went three strokes clear of world number three Nelly Korda, the American carding a 67 to improve to 11 under through 36 holes.

South Koreans Kim Sei-young and Ryu So-yeon sat tied fourth on nine under, while a group of six players were eight under par at the halfway stage.

Furue, meanwhile, slipped seven shots back after failing to build on her superb eight-under first round, the Japanese posting a one-over 72.

Defending champion Minjee Lee made it through to the weekend after a two-under 69 put her three shots inside the cut line.
