Hot start to Students' Tournament at The 

Duke's, St Andrews

The 6th Stirling International got underway at The Duke’s course at St. Andrews on Wednesday in hot and humid conditions for the 94 men and 21 women contesting this year’s tournament.

With the course set up as an examination of the students’ golfing education, there were rewards available for sensible course management, but danger lurking for errant shots.

On the women’s side, the stand-out round of the day came from University of St. Andrews student Marie Danielsson (Saint German), who shot a one under 70. Two shots back, St. Andrews team-mate Alexa Hammer (Quail Ridge CC) sits at one over, with Ulster’s Shannon Burke (Ballinrobe) a further shot back. 
Mary Doyle (The Heath) from Maynooth and Stirling’s defending champion Gemma Batty (Powfoot) round out the top five at four over.

The men’s competition saw some very strong scoring with the top ten players separated by only two shots at the end of the first day. Leading with very impressive one under par 70s are Stirling’s Jordan Sundborg (Shanklin and Sandown) and Ulster’s Ross Dutton (Tandragee).
 The next three golfers are bunched together at level par, St Andrews' Peter Kerr (Royal Portrush), Sam Locke (Banchory) from the Scottish Golf team, and James Glenn (Brancepeth Castle) of Durham University.
