NORTH BERWICK, SCOTLAND | Kendall Dye was worried. It had nothing to do with missing fairways but the fact that something she had posted on Twitter had gone a bit off-piste on its route into the pages of a local paper.
It was all to do with the wonderful day she had in St Andrews the Friday ahead of this week’s Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open at the Renaissance Club in Gullane. To revisit the story, this 32-year-old, four-time winner on the Symetra Tour had joined a queue at 3:20 in the morning in a bid to see if she could be among those lucky enough to get a starting time over the Old Course at some point that day.
Whilst in the queue, a cheerful Aussie had drawn her attention to the fact that she would need to produce a handicap certificate to prove that she could play a bit. A little later, she tweeted the tale as follows: "St. Andrews needed a letter of proof from my home club for my handicap to allow me to play. … I had to think quick & pulled this out of my wallet for the first time ever."
