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.
