St Rule Trophy First Round Scores & Report

Tilly Holder leads by two with a 75

A blustery wind, unusually from the south-east, led to high scores on the New Course St Andrews in the first round of the St Rule Trophy.
Best score of the day (and the only score under par) came from Tilly Holder, Woburn, who carded a 73 with five birdies.
Lying in joint second place with 75 were Rebecca Watson (Holston Hills, USA) and Emily Ogilvy (Auchterarder).
Defending Champion Kylie Walker (Buchanan Castle) was disappointed with her round of 76
which included 4 birdies and 2 double bogeys.
Ann Ramsay of Kirriemuir, called up as reserve, putted like a dream for a 77, the same score as Pamela Pretswell (Bothwell Castle) and Tara Davies (Holyhead Bay).
Megan Briggs (Kilmacolm), recently crowned Scottish Champion, scored 78. She found the windy conditions tricky especially on the inward half. Others on 78 were
Laura Murray (Alford) who pitched in at the last for a 78, Gillian O'Leary (Cork) with an eagle 2 at the 4th and Alexandra Peters (Notts Ladies).
Scotland, represented by Louise Kenney (Pitreavie), Pamela Pretswell and Kylie Walker lead with 153 in the team event.
