Rough start for Aditi at British Open

Aditi Ashok's campaign at the Women's British Open Championships was off to a sluggish start as she shot a four-over 76 in the opening round, here. The 19-year-old Indian golfer was lying T-131st needing to pull in a very strong second round to ensure weekend action. She has made the cut in two of the first three Majors in her rookie season on the LPGA.

Aditi had just two birdies on fifth and eighth, but she dropped shots on third, fourth and then a double on par-4 10th before two more bogeys on 14th and 16th for a 76. Michelle Wie shot a women's course record eight-under-par 64 in fair conditions at Kingsbarns Golf Links to take a one stroke lead. Wie, who is looking to make her fifth Solheim Cup appearance for the United States team later this month, is a stroke ahead of South Korean In-Kyung Kim, who won the Marathon Classic on the LPGA Tour a fortnight ago.
