All three ladies carded opening rounds of -5 under par 67. The  temperatures soared to 26C at the  Buckinghamshire Golf Club in Denham, on Thursday, with a light breeze making easier for the spectators, but the wind caught the attention of the players. Sally said she did not start too well, and was happy she had dad Graham on her bag to keep her focused; " It was great to have my dad on the bag because he’s really good in the wind.”  “I didn’t get off to a great start as I bogeyed the first two holes but I did a great job of staying positive and focused and then I had a birdie on the third, which helped and I started to give myself lots of good chances." Sarah Kemp strangely wore a striped woolly jumper, but played good golf anyway; “It was nice and solid. I didn’t have a bogey, hit 15 greens and made a few good putts at the end. It was a good back nine and a nice birdie at the last. I really like the course." "You’ve got chances on the par fives, to take your opportunity and some of them you can hit in two. It’s one of my favourite courses to play in the UK,  it’s perfect.” Celine Herbin  was the first player to reach -5 under par, and held the Club House lead for a while on her own. There are three further ladies tied in fourth place, at -4 under par for the tournament, Caroline MassonBecky Morgan and Amelia Lewis.  Caroline mentioned making bogey on 17; “It was a shame on 17 because it’s a great hole and you can lay up or you can go for the green. It was pretty downwind and I was a little bit between three-wood and driver." "It’s kind of hard, I thought maybe I’ll hit the driver a little easier but it went into that water. It’s a great chance to make birdie or eagle but I got away with a bogey and it was okay.”  Becky remarked on the wind, and hoped this tournament would kick-start her year;  “The wind picked up on the back nine. It was a little breezy early on, but now it’s definitely affecting the ball so I was happy with four-under today. I’ve been hitting the ball well but not scoring so well so it was nice to see the putts going in because it has been a little scrappy at times. I’m hoping this will be the turning point for my year.” Amelia hails from Florida, and was right at home in the temperatures; “It was a perfect day in the 80s with the wind blowing and no humidity, so I hardly broke a sweat.”
