Playing in the first round, Angehrn hit 18 greens and made 30 putts. She eagled the par-four third hole when she holed out from 107 metres with a gap wedge and gave took advantage of her birdie opportunities on the sixth, seventh, ninth, 11th, 12th and 14th holes. The only mistake on the score card was a bogey at the fifth.
“I had a great start and I was hitting it solidly. I still left some putts out there though!” said Angehrn. “It was nice to play with Melissa Reid, a good amateur player. She is very talented but she had a bit of bad luck and finished on three-over-par. She was hitting it very nicely though.”
