Greciet enjoyed her best putting day of the season. She picked up seven birdies and one bogey on her way to her career best round. “I think my putting was the key. I lost my putting this year and I don’t know why but I had it today and it was great,” said the 23-year-old from Saint Vincent de Tyrosse, currently ranked 118th on the Henderson Money List.
Stütz, from Linz in Upper Austria, birdied six of her first 12 holes and sank long putts to save par on the 17th and 18th.
“I had 14 putts the first nine and 12 putts on the second nine so it was just brilliant. The putting was actually really good and I made a big putt for birdie on the first hole which helped me because I was a bit nervous on the range and first tee,” said the four-time Austrian Youth Strokeplay champion, who tied for 53rd at Golf Club Foehrenwald last year.
She is trying to make the cut, but has the chance to become the first amateur to win on the Ladies European Tour since Amy Yang won the 2006 ANZ Ladies Masters aged 16.
