Celine Boutier joins Lydia Ko at the top of the leaderboard at the end of the third day at the Women’s Scottish Open.

Lydia was joined by Celine Boutier at the top of the leaderboard after the third day of the Trust Golf Women’s Scottish Open.

France’s Boutier scored a five-under-par 67 to fire four shots at the New Zealander, who could only manage a one-under 71. Ko made up for three bogeys with a birdie finish at the Donald Lynx.

The French lady was pleased with her performance but focused on taking each day as it came.

“It was a very solid day,” Boutier said.

“I got off to a pretty solid start up the front and that helped me get some rest.

“The conditions were windy and a little tough, so it was really good to start well and I was very patient. I had many opportunities and I took advantage of some of them.

“I really like to combine golf and play in windy conditions.

I find that my ball has very little flight, and so I find that I never have trouble keeping it down, which is an advantage here because the ball doesn’t impact much. I also have some good memories from Scotland, of playing well in the past, so that’s always helpful.

“I think what I learned about being in this position in the past is that really anything can happen, whether you have the lead or not.

“Try not to get too ahead of yourself and focus on what you can control which is really each shot at a time,” she concluded.
