ANNE Van Dam, Mi-Hyang Lee and Jane Park lead the way after the first round of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open.

The trio sit on -8 after the first round at The Renaissance Club, with poor weather expected over the course, near Dirleton, throughout much of day.

One shot off the lead is Moriya Jutanugarn, the older sister of last year’s winner Ariya Jutanugarn.

Ariya won the competition at Gullane Golf Club 12 months ago and sits tied for 15th after the first round.

North Berwick’s Catriona Matthew is already back out on the course for her second round.

Yesterday (Thursday), she finished on 71 but is currently +3 after five holes.

Currently, the cut is expected at level par.
