Chesham coach prepares to defend trophy at her fourth World Cup
Amid slanting rain and a 30mph wind, Dimmock managed to post a respectable eight over 296 to finish tied in 39th and bank €6,920 (£6,190).
The Wentworth professional was five shots off the pace with her opening round 70 at Dundonald Links, near Kilmarnock on Scotland’s west coast. A second round 79 was followed by a 76 and an improved 71 on her final round to win a share of the €1,405,000 prize pot as Dimmock climbed one place on the Ladies European Tour Order of Merit to ninth with earnings of €39,900 this season.
But as Korean champion Mi Hyang Lee pulled away – and top Brit Georgia Hall consolidated her Order of Merit lead in tied ninth – Dryburgh had a disappointing outing on her ‘home’ major.
The Aberdeen-born golfer returned an opening round 80 and a second-round 81 brought her Scottish Open to an abrupt finish.
Dimmock has travelled across to St Andrews on Scotland’s east coast for the Ricoh British Open which starts today and boasts an enticing €3,250,000 prize pool.
Defending champion Ariya Jutanugarn and former winners Inbee Park, Yani Tseng and Mo Martin will be among a strong field of contenders at the first major to be staged at Kingsbarns.
