Denmark’s Nicole Larsen holds the clubhouse lead after a weather-affected opening day of the ASI Ladies Scottish Open.


Larsen carded a four-under-par 67 at the Renaissance Club to lead by one shot from compatriot Emily Pedersen, Germany’s Olivia Cowen, Spain’s Azahara Munoz and the American duo of Jennifer Song and Amy Olson.

A two-hour fog delay meant 30 players were unable to complete their rounds on schedule and the first round is set to resume at 8am on Friday.



Larsen, who recorded six birdies and two bogeys, said: “I had 26 putts so that helps a lot. I didn’t hit it super close but I made a couple of long ones and I just tried to keep it in play.

“I worked a lot on my putting and short game (during lockdown) and actually playing my home course from the white tees. It’s not long but kind of the same distance as out here, maybe a little bit longer.


“It forces me to make a lot of up and downs if my long game is not on point, which it wasn’t out there today. So I definitely have improved my short game over this period and it kind of paid off today.”

Munoz made the ideal start by holing her second shot to the opening hole from 148 yards for an eagle, the Solheim Cup player having been disqualified from her last event for failing to sign her scorecard.

Scotland’s Gemma Dryburgh, who won two events on the recent Rose Ladies Series, leads the home challenge after an opening 69 which included six birdies, a double bogey on the 11th and two bogeys.





Dryburgh was due to hit the opening tee shot at 6.30am but was made to wait for two hours due to fog.

“It was quite tough actually because it just kept being half an hour (delay) and we were probably eight minutes away from walking to the tee when it first got delayed,” Dryburgh said.

“It was a bit strange because every half an hour you had to be kind of ready to go again, but in the end it was good and we had a calm front nine and made the most of it before the wind picked up.”
