After two laps under par, Céline Boutier had a complicated day at Muirfield this Saturday. With only one birdie on her card against four bogeys, the former Paris Country Club player returns a third card of 74 (+3). At -1 in total, Boutier finds himself 29th in the British Open.
In front, it was a South African who made the show. If Ashleigh Buhai had signed a brilliant 65 (-6) on Friday, the native of Johannesburg offered herself 8 birdies this Saturday, including four in a row between 4 and 7, for only one bogey conceded on 18. Her card of 64 (-7) allows him to tack in the lead.
“ Of course, I’m very happy. Buhai said afterwards. To achieve such a score under these conditions, we can only congratulate ourselves. The wind was blowing very hard and I had to play 3 more clubs sometimes. Looking back, this is probably one of my best golf tricks »
With a total score of -14, the triple winner on the LET is 5 moves ahead of Hinako Shibuno and In-gee Chun.
