Walker and Caithness stumble at first hurdle

TENERIFE LADIES' MATCHPLAY: Scots Kylie Walker and Krystle Caithness both lost in the first round of the Tenerife Ladies' Matchplay Championship at Golf Las Americas yesterday.

Walker lost by 2 and 1 to England's Danielle Montgomery, while Caithness went out at the final hole against another English player, Felicity Johnson. Caithness was one up with six to play but lost the 13th and 14th before bouncing back to level the match at the 15th.

But a win for Johnson at the par-four 17th put her one up and she held on to secure the one-hole victory and a second-round match against Wales' Lydia Hall.
