Holly Clyburn: A great start in Florida to what looks like being a big year for the Lincolnshire lass (click on the image by Cal Carson Golf Agency to enlarge).

Holly Clyburn's hole in one helps her lead

by two shots in Women's Dixie Amateur

England international Holly Clyburn had a hole-in-one as she took the first-round lead in the Women’s Dixie Amateur Championship in Florida with a five-under par 67.
Eighteen-year-old Holly (Woodhall Spa) aced the 150yd 5th hole. Her super-shot helped her to a two-stroke lead over her playing partner, 14-year-old Alexis Thompson, Coral Springs, Florida, who was the 2007 Dixie Champion and won the Junior Orange Bowl girls' title earlier in the week.
The English girls’ champion from Lincolnshire returned her score as winds picked up during the day, making the 6,500yd lay-out at Heron Bay Golf Club, Coral Springs a true test for some of the world’s top ranked female amateurs.
Americans Lindy Duncan of Florida and Brittany Smith of California are both three strokes back after shooting 70.
The 2008 Dixie Amateur champion, Candace Schepperle from Birmingham, Alabama and Duke University, is four shots back after her 74.
The top 50 players plus ties will make the cut after the second round.
Holly, who is also the French Under-18 open champion and the Faldo series girls' champion, won the English Women’s Golf Association girls’ order of merit for 2009. She is in the GB&I squad for the 2010 Curtis Cup team.
