The Women’s British Open starts the week at the famed Muirfield links in East Lothian, out of Edinburgh. This is a momentous event as women were unable to play at all at Muirfield until recent years.
Our best result last week was Stephen Jaeger ($420) ran 5th, Daniel Hillier ($160) finished 12th and Leonie Harm ($570) looked a big chance one behind with one round to go faded due mainly to inexperience. I will follow her and I think she can win in the short term.
