Chloe got her Irish Women’s Open Strokeplay campaign under way – yesterday – she carded a one-over par 76 to lie 10 shots behind runaway leader Maria Dunne – before her summer schedule intensifie­s.

“Ireland is a good opportunit­y and I hope to do well,” she said.

“I’ve had a couple of weeks to get productive practice in and work hard at the same time as doing exams.

“Then the week after I’m going away with the university team to the Slovenia Amateur events, which one of my team mates, Gemma Batty, won last year.

“June gets really busy with British events and I’m looking forward to getting out and playing.”

Chloe hails from a strong swimming family. Her parents both raced at national level whilst her aunt (Ruth Gilfillan) competed for GB in the Seoul 1988 Olympic Games.

But when her family moved to St Andrews, the then eight-year-old Chloe soon got involved in golf, with a little help from her grandfathe­r.

“St Andrews was the perfect place for me to be introduced to golf,” she explained.
