Netherlands lead by four in team event

Netherlands (142) were leading by four strokes from three teams - Ireland, England and Scotland - at the end of the first day in the interntional team event staged in conjuntion with the first two rounds.
Christel Boeljon (pictured right by Cal Carson Golf Agency, all rights reserved) and Dewi-Claire Schreefel both scored one-under-par 71s which meant the Netherlands were able to discard the par 72 scored by Caroline Karsten.
Only the best two from three scores count daily over the first two days.
Here is how the teams stand at the moment:

142 NETHERLANDS (Christel Boeljon 71, Dewi-Claire Schreefel 71).
146 IRELAND (Leona Maguire 73, Lisa Maguire 73); ENGLAND (Hannah Barwood 73, Kerry Smith 73) & SCOTLAND (Kylie Walker 71, Roseanne Niven 75).
