Damp start for last round of 'Helen Holm'

over Royal Troon links

The third and final round of the Helen Holm Scottish women's open amateur stroke play championship looked like being played in miserable conditions.
The first players, Westhill's Samantha Leslie and Bronwyn Davies (Trentham), set out at 7.30am in a steady drizzle with no sign of the sun being able to break through on a grey, overcast day.
The leading trio - Louise Kenney (Pitreavie) 138 (-12), Nikki Foster (Pleasington) 138 (-12) and Danielle McVeigh (Royal Co Down Ladies) 141 (-9), were due to set off together at 11.10am.
The second last threesomes at 11am were the defending champion, 15-year-old Leona Maguire (Slieve Russell) 144 (-6), Rachel Jennings (Izaak Walton) 144 (-6) and Charlotte Ellis (Minchinhampton) (145 (-5).
The Ladies Golf Union selection committee meet this evening to select the Great Britain & Ireland team of eight for the Curtis Cup match against the United States at Essex County Club, Massachusetts in mid-June.
It will be announced on Monday afternoon.
