Wie birdies final three holes to lead at Women's British Open

Wie birdies final three holes to lead at Women's British Open”

The fairways and greens may be bigger, but so are the undulations in comparison to a regular LPGA or LET event. Her second shot finished in the same bunker. The former Scottish Amateur champion worked four summers at Kingsbarns and knows the course well.

But will strategy come in to play?

As for Hall, the 21-year old - who is already all-but assured of making her Solheim Cup debut later this month - underlined her enormous promise with a second-round 67 that included as many as seven birdies.

"The weather was about the worst I have played in, but the eagle at the 11th was quite unexpected". He tells me where to land the ball and he's been spot on every time. "Just focus on relaxing tonight and get a good night's rest". It's not going to affect the side wind much. She said Tuesday after a chilling practice round that she's ready for just about anything on the course over the next four days.

Lexi Thompson, the world No 2, also benefited from the local knowledge of her bagman, Kevin McAlpine, to post a 67 that was concluded with a putt of 20-feet on the last for a birdie as she tucked herself in among the frontrunners. You play in pain, you grind trough it and lose sight that this is a game.

"I had a lot of fun out there today". But it's a challenging style of golf, which is good.

"It's a sign I'm getting old", she joked.

"It's all about picking the targets out there and committing to it, and obviously it depends on the conditions". Last week: Mi Hyang Lee won the Aberdeen Asset Management Ladies Scottish Open.

Barracuda Championship: John Huh made his eighth birdie on his final hole to finish with 15 points and take the first-round lead.

"I felt the Scottish Open (where she was 19th) was a great way to get into links golf". "I tried to force things at the end". "Now, if I have three-hours to work on my game I spend two of those on and around the putting green".

"I actually hit it the same throughout both nines", she said.

Easier-hitting clubs are not because of her issues with injury, specifically the neck problem that had her scratch from the US Women's Open last month, but Wie has a new philosophy rather than the driven young teenager we remember from the WBO at St Andrews ten years ago.

"I don't have a full-time caddie and I just phoned the caddie master here and got very lucky", said Duncan, who got on better plotting her way round the links than she did with Roberts' name. He talked about short game and said that you should never feel sorry for yourself and never give up. The stunning seaside holes on this gem of a course on the Fife coast helped create that impression.
