Van Dam, who entered the week in one of the automatic qualification positions for the upcoming Solheim Cup, laid down a statement of intent in front of her ‘idol’, Team Europe Vice-Captain Suzann Pettersen.

Playing with Pettersen for the first time in her career starting from the 10th, the 23-year-old made an eagle on the par 5 12th, hitting a driver and a six iron to within three feet before making three further birdies and two bogeys to make the turn in 33. She started the back nine as she meant to go on by making her second eagle of the day at the par 5 1st hole, this time with a flagged 5 iron to 4ft before recording four further gains to sign for a 63 (-8).

“Today was a perfect day weather-wise. No wind. A little bit of sun. Good to take care of things.”


“I always like to play with good groups. Actually Suzann was probably one of my idols growing up, so first time playing with her, it was nice.”

26-year-old Mi Hyang Lee, who captured the trophy in 2017 at Dundonald Golf Club, has fond memories of Scotland and completed her round without dropping a stroke – recording six birdies and an eagle.

“Because I actually live in the island in Korea, it is always so windy over there, so I always like to practice the lower shots. I really love to play the Scottish and I think where I live in Korea gives me a lot of help as it is always windy there.”

American Jane Park, who narrowly missed out in a five-hole playoff last week to make the field at the AIG Women’s British Open, completed the trio at the top, signing for a 63 of her own – which included a run of four birdies in a run from the 4th hole.

“I just had no expectations. I was just thinking, let’s scrape it around today and thankfully I shot a good number.”

In total 46 players finished under par in the morning, compared to 24 in the afternoon but leading the afternoon starters, also looking to solidify her place in the Solheim Cup European Team, is Caroline Hedwall. The big-hitting Swede fired a round of 65 (-6).

Defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn sits in T18 after a first round 68 (-3) whilst Pamela Pretswell Asher leads the Scottish charge after a round of 69 (-2).
