Murray made the perfect start to her round with successive birdies on the opening two holes in Bad Zwischenahn. A huge drive led to a third birdie at the par-5 seventh before a rare missed drive at the ninth slipped the leader back to two-under at the midway point.
After a solid opening nine holes, the experienced Scot found her rhythm down the back nine with six birdies and no dropped shots coming back. Murray has been frustrated in recent weeks with strong tee-to-green play being let down on the putting surface but speaking after the round Murray had no such frustrations with a change of putter proving the key to her change in fortunes at the German course.
With the Rügenwalder Mühle Ladies Open the final event before the season ending Road to La Largue Final, Friday’s second round is crucial for many players with vital qualifying points up for grabs. Overnight leader Murray will be conscious that a large group of players remain in contention and equally determined to secure a LET Access Series victory as the end of the season approaches setting the scene for a terrific day’s play once again in Bad Zwischenahn.
