Caithness and Kenny fly flag for Scotland

KRYSTLE Caithness, who was eighth in Slovakia last week, and Lynn Kenny were the best of the Scots in a tie for ninth place on 71 after yesterday's first round of the 54-hole ABN Amro Ladies' Dutch Open at Broekpolder.

Caithness dropped shots at the first two holes but hit back with a haul of five birdies, while Kenny, who scarred her card with a double-bogey at the 11th, had half a dozen birdies to also finish on the one under par mark and just three strokes behind the surprise leader, Ireland's Hazel Kavanagh.

Laura Davies was in a three-way tie for second on 69 after a five-birdie round.

Carly Booth, 17, from Comrie in Perthshire, produced a solid effort with a 74, while fellow-Scottish rookie, Kylie Walker, had a 76 in her bid to make her first cut of her new career. But Vikki Laing (77) and Clare Queen (80) both had work to do to make the cut.
