Reid upbeat about Open chances
Melissa Reid was upbeat on Wednesday about her chances of winning this week’s British Women’s Open.
England’s Melissa Reid was upbeat on Wednedsay about her chances of winning this week’s British Women’s Open at ‘nasty’ Carnoustie, the tough links course on Scotland’s east coast.
The 23-year-old from Derby is the second highest-ranked Briton in the field – behind Scot Catriona Matthew, but she is taking nothing for granted.
For despite winning last month’s Dutch Open – one of her five top-10 finishes in 10 European Tour starts this year – she is still not satisfied with her form.
Reid, who currently stands fourth in the LET Money List, said: “I’ve played all right this year but I would quite like to have had some better results.
“The win in Holland came at a good time and I certainly feel that my game is much more mature than what it was a year ago.
“My swing feels a lot better. There’s something about it. I’ve just changed a few things and I like the way I’ve been practising.
“I just have a little bit more self-belief. This is my fourth British Open so obviously the whole arena is getting a lot more comfortable.”
The defending champion is world No 1 Yani Tseng from Taiwan.
