The British Womens Open. Morgan & Camille Shate 1st Round Lead August 02 2013

RICOH WOMEN´S BRITISH OPEN* Morgan Pressel and Camilla Lennarth shared the 1st round lead at The British Womens Open on the St Andrews Old Course in Scotland. Camilla Lennarth / Getty Camilla and Morgan shared rounds of -6 under par 66 to lead the British Womens Open by just one shot from a chasing pack of seven players. Camilla was playing for the first time at St Andrews, and likes the way she is putting; “This is my first time at St. Andrews and first time at the British Open, I’m very satisfied. I hit all the fairways and all the greens and it went pretty smooth out there. When I made birdie on the first hole, I thought, okay, I’m at least going to make one birdie at this tournament! I’ve been very excited. Ever since I qualified on Monday I’ve been looking forward to this, since I grew up. I’m very happy that I made it here and that was the thought. No matter what happens out here, I’m just going to enjoy every moment and take it all in. Of course I’m surprised that I’m tied for the lead but I know that I can hit good golf shots. It's just a matter of putting them all together at once, and I did today and I'm satisfied. Last week in London, I started to putt well again.  So I just kind of carried that on to this week. And putting well usually just kind of takes on a little pressure off the shots hitting into the green, because you feel like, okay, well, I'm rolling it well, and that makes you, you know, just kind of take your shoulders down a little bit and take a breather and you know you're going to have a shot at the hole at least.” Morgan Pressel / Getty Morgan said she had felt good out there today; " I felt good out there today, The last time I played here I was pretty down on links golf and wasn't really looking forward to coming back to the British Open.  But since then I have gotten better at managing my game and hitting shots. At a British Open you can’t just hit a stock draw. That just doesn’t work. You have to hit high shots and low shots. You have to bump it and sometimes putt from 40-yards off the green. You’ve got to do whatever it takes and as a creative person that’s something I enjoy.” The chasing pack of seven, at -5 under par, are: Stacy Lewis, Na Yeon Choi, Mi Jeong, Jean, Nicole Castrale, Ryann O'Toole, Sydnee Michaels and Eun Hee Ji. Stacy is another player who is happy with her putter; " I got more comfortable with my putter, made a couple of good putts for par. To come away, shooting 5‑under on the back nine on this golf course, I don't care if it's calm or if it's windy, it's a good score, so I'm very happy with the day.” Inbee Park, who is trying for her third straight Major is  back at -3 under-par for the day.
