Golf Ireland’s decision not to send a women’s team to the Euro Nations in Spain looks a shrewd one after Kate Lanigan hit the front at the Helen Holm Scottish Women’s Open.

Lanigan carded a second round of 75 to share a four-way tie for the lead on one-over alongside Katherine O’Connor, Nathalie Borg and overnight leader Jessica Hall.

Local favourites Lorna McClymont and Megan Ashley are just one shot off the pace at Royal Troon on two-over.

The Hermitage star struggled on the front nine carding four bogeys as she turned in 39. She fell to five-over through ten holes buts a strong finish where she reeled off birdies on 12, 15 and 18 with a bogey on 16 helped her climb into a share of the lead heading into the final round.

The Dubliner has already enjoyed a trophy laden season having won a R&A Student series event in Italy while she also claimed the Student Tour Series Order of Merit title which could see her play her way onto the International Arnold Palmer Cup team in Lahinch this July.

Clandeboye’s Jessica Ross is six shots off the pace after an excellent round of 71 while Emma O’Driscoll, Annabel Wilson and Mairead Martin all made the cut.
