LENNARTH AND PRESSEL LEAD RICOH WOMEN'S BRITISH OPEN
Sweden’s Camilla Lennarth shared the lead with Morgan Pressel of the United States after the first round at the Ricoh Women’s British Open.
Lennarth, who final qualified at Kingsbarns on Monday, made a 10-foot birdie putt on the par-four 18th in fading light in front of the famous R&A clubhouse on The Old Course at St Andrews to join major champion Pressel on six-under-par 66.
This Lennarth’s first visit to the Home of Golf and the 25-year-old from Stockholm made the perfect start as she hit 18 fairways and as many greens, with six birdies, including at the first and the last.
“This is my first time at St. Andrews and first time at the British Open,” said Lennarth.“I’m very satisfied. I hit all the fairways and all the greens and it went pretty smooth out there.
“When I made birdie on the first hole, I thought, okay, I’m at least going to make one birdie at this tournament! I’ve been very excited. Ever since I qualified on Monday I’ve been looking forward to this, since I grew up. I’m very happy that I made it here and that was the thought. No matter what happens out here, I’m just going to enjoy every moment and take it all in.”
Lennarth is ranked 35th on the LET Order of Merit after nine
