Best of the best Three groups to watch out for
7.47am: Ariya Jutanugarn (Thailand), Stacy Lewis (US), Charley Hull (England) Hull plays with two former world No1s and Lewis will be fancied after winning the Ladies Scottish Open on Sunday. Hull, 24, is no lover of the links, but must cope with the conditions.
8.08am: Georgia Hall (England), Nelly Korda (US), Nasa Hataoka (Japan)
Two of the top-three ranked players in the field for Hall to accompany, but the 25-year-old will be confident of blossoming in the wind. Hataoka has yet to make a cut in an AIG Women’s Open.
12.27pm: Danielle Kang (US), Yu Liu (China), Lydia Ko (New Zealand)
World No2 Kang is the obvious favourite after recent LPGA back-to-back wins. Ko was second in the second of those and has been showing signs of a return to her former girl-wonder self.
