After a missed cut in Evian two weeks ago, Céline Boutier is much better on board for the other women’s major played in Europe. In Muirfield, under a strong wind, the Frenchwoman started a week with a card of 68. A -3 which places the 17th in the world three shots from the head, occupied by the Japanese Hinako Shibuno.
Boutier, in good shape in August as proven by his 2nd place last Sunday at the Scottish Open, looked back on his day disturbed by the wind: “ It was difficult to get a lot of birdie opportunities, because with this wind, it’s really difficult to get close enough to the flag. But my putting helped me a lot, especially to save pars. »
Among the other French women, Perrine Delacour is 26th (par), while Céline Herbin points in +6 (118th), four strokes from the provisional cut.
