Olivia Mehaffey off pace after rocky start in Estonia

Two double bogeys in the first three holes prevented teenage sensation Olivia Mehaffey from being among the leaders after the first round of the European Ladies Amateur Championship in Estonia.

The 16-year-old Irish Girls' champion from Royal County Down took six on both two and three and had a bogey five on the seventh. However she did card birdies at six and 18 for a 75.

That put her eight strokes adrift of leader Nuria Iturrios and seven behind French star Celine Boutier.

Also on 75 was Irish champion Paula Grant from Lisburn who went out in 39 with bogeys on five, eight and nine and birdies on four and six. She came home with nine straight pars.

It was a disappointing day for the Maguire twins from Slieve Russell – Leona and Lisa – as they both slipped to scores of 76.

Castleroy's Chloe Ryan saw her hopes of glory dashed as she made a disastrous start with a triple-bogey eight on the first and bogeys on each of the next three holes.

It didn't get much better as she had just one birdie, four more bogeys and finished with a double-bogey seven.

Meanwhile, the European Young Masters begins in Hamburg today with Ireland represented in the Boys' event by Michael Cooke and Jordan Logue, and in the Girls' contest by Julie McCarthy and Niamh McSherry.
