CHLOE AND LORNA SHARE WOMEN'S LEAD AFTER 36 HOLES

Chloe Goadby (St Regulus Ladies), a student at Stirling University, and Lorna McClymont (SRUC Elmwood) share the 36-hole lead in the R and A Foundation Scholars' women's tournament.
Chloe posted the clubhouse target of 141 with rounds of 70 and 71 over the Eden course. The final round will be over the Old Course at St Andrews.

Goadby's  efforts were highlighted by an eagle 3 at the second hole in her opening 18 holes.
In the final group of the day, Milngavie's McClymont  joined Goadby, pictured on right, at the summit after a superb four-under-par 69 in the afternoon.
Hope for biggest career win
“I gave up a few chances out there, but there were some tough pin positions, so I couldn’t get too greedy,” Goadby, 21, said. “I played steadily, just didn’t hole many putts so I felt as though I could have been a few shots better, but I’ll certainly take five under for the day.
“It’s nice to be in my home town. I don’t get to play the Eden Course much these days, as obviously I’m at university. I like it, I grew up on it. It’s now good to get the chance to play the Old Course tomorrow. I’m excited for that as I’ve not played it in a while. Hopefully the putts will drop.”
McClymont, 18, making her debut in the event, added, “It’s great to be sharing the lead, especially as my second round included a double bogey at the 14th.
“I won the Scottish School Girls last year, but winning tomorrow would be the biggest win of my career so far, definitely.”
The pair sits one-stroke clear of a trio of players, Aberdeen's Jasmine MacKintosh (Robert Gordon University), Nicola Slater (University of Stirling) and Norway’s Emily Michelle Laws (University of Stirling).
Mackintosh had scores of 74 and 68 - her second round being the lowest of the day in the women's tournament. She had five birdies in halves of 35-33.
