The forecast at the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open is for some rain and wind. Maude-Aimee Leblanc says bring it on.
“That’s fine. I mean, I bought a rain jacket this week here, ao I feel like I’m prepared for any kind of weather right now,” said Leblanc, who is tied for 10th going into the weekend at Dundonald Links near Troon.
At eight under, Leblanc is six shots off the lead held by Lydia Ko at the midway point of the tournament.
Leblanc had just one bogey as she shot a three-under 69 in Friday’s second round in more favourable conditions than what’s expected on the weekend.
“‘I’ve always loved it out here. I don’t know what it is. I mean, obviously different golf courses, different way to play the course. We’ve had incredible weather too, so that’s helped a lot, but, yeah, so far so good,” said Leblanc.
“I feel like I gave myself a lot of chances today and on the back, the putts started falling a little bit more, so I was able to take advantage of good iron shots” added Leblanc, who says she’s also found a comfort level on the greens.
“I’m not sure what it is. I feel like I feel more comfortable with the speed. That has a lot to do with it and I feel like I see the breaks better too. I don’t know if it’s the darker colour of the green that makes me see a little better the lines, but yeah, I just feel comfortable out here,” she said.
