was really happy with the way she played today, putting well;
“I’m really thrilled, I started really well and was three-under after four, then I lost a ball, which can easily happen.”
“Then I double bogeyed and you’re back to normal again.”
“I made a lot of birdies, which was the difference from my last year here. I putted really well and apart from one hole, I kept the ball in play.”
Christine was also contented, she too was making putts;
“I’m really satisfied, especially as I started with plus three after four holes.”
“I just started hitting greens and making putts.”
“I left some chances out there, so I know you can score well here. I really like the course and I liked it last year.”
“You know, the greens are a bit tricky, so if the putter works, it helps.
was happy to stay patient;
“It’s always good to shoot under par and I think on this golf course it’s even better, so I’m very happy.”
“I stayed focused on every single shot, because it’s a tricky golf course, and kept patient.”
was another player who had her putter working well;
“Today I started pretty roughly. I was hitting the ball badly in places but my putter was working so I was saving pars and taking my birdie chances, as I only had 27 putts.”
“I think the course has matured from last year, when the greens were firmer, but the course is challenging and the difference between making a birdie or a bogey in a minute.”
There are four further ladies close behind on -1 under par: rookie Nuria Iturrios, Patricia Sanz Barrio, the defending champion Emily Kristine Pedersen, and Kiran Matharu.
