On Thursday she never drove the ball beyond the 250 yard mark, hit only four fairways in 14 attempts and 4 greens in 18 in regulation and was clearly light years away from the teenage prodigy who finished third in the US Open not so long ago.

Seaside golf is held to be the best of all because it is associated with gently moving undulations…To be able always to stand true to our ball can have an enormous influence on the truth of the stroke, and this explains much of the difficulty of the greater links and their suitability for the most exacting tests of all.It also possibly explains the failures of players who are undoubtedly fine stroke producers but minimize their chances by spending their days on their own park or otherwise artificial courses.
