We are still waiting for Emily Aird who returned a 91 this morning. Carly looks to take 2nd qualifying spot behind Kelsey MacDonald who returned scores of 74-74. Eve will also almost certainly qualify.

Ailie Burnett withdrew due to an injury. We hope it's not too bad, will keep you up to date on that on.
