Moriya Jutanugarn tees off at the 6th hole during day four of the Ladies Scottish Open at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick Scotland on Sunday

Minjee Lee was forced to make a late birdie in her second round of 73 at the Aberdeen Standard Investments Ladies Scottish Open in North Berwick just to make the cut on Friday but weekend rounds of 64 and 67 have seen her fight her way into a share of 6th place in the LPGA Tour event. Hur began the final round one shot off the lead held then by Moriya Jutanugarn and an early bogey hardly gave evidence of what was about to unfold.

"It's really all positives from the week and I'd have taken this at the start if it was offered to me, although I can't help but be a little disappointed by two bogeys in the last three holes", said the 27-year-old, who did win the Douglas Lowe Memorial trophy for highest-finishing Scot in both men's and women's versions of the Scottish Open. "I don't think I'm good in the bad weather, but I had a good round today, so I can say I'm a pretty good player with the bad weather". The wind wasn't up too badly when I finished, so it was not so bad. "I just played with my confidence after that", she said.

Scotland's Carly Booth, who posted a flawless round of 66 (-5), has shown signs of being back to her best form this year and today's impressive display will provide the local gallery with a welcome home-grown talent to support tomorrow.

"This is the only event where I have some family, so it's always nice to come back and play in Scotland".

The greens were being weegied all the way down the back nine for the last group but despite the torrents of rain over Friday and again yesterday, they got through with just one three hour delay to get the championship finished on time. "He told me on the fourth tee box, "come on, MJ, you can win this tournament".

Hur capped off the performance in style with further birdies at the 16th and 18th holes for a five-under-par 66 on a day when club workers were kept busy squeegeeing the greens to keep the course playable in relentless rain.

"I saw my sister on the leaderboard and I tried to catch her, but I couldn't". She beat me the last few weeks and this week she did a good job. I'll keep rooting for her and cheering for her.
