WILTSHIRE'S golfing trio each had their individual struggles on day one of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland today.

The course is one of the three used for the pro-am event.

Fraser will play his second round at St Andrews tomorrow before tackling Kingsbarns on Saturday ahead of the 54 hole cut.

The duo lie one shot clear of five others - victorious Ryder Cup vice-captain Padraig Harrington, fellow Irishman Paul McGinley, Austrian Matthias Schwab, Jinho Choi of South Korea and Thailand's Phachara Khongwatmai.

Frenchwoman Corine Remande suffered a serious eye injury after being struck by a shot from American Brooks Koepka during last Friday's opening day of the Ryder Cup at Le Golf National, near Paris.

When we won 2-1 at City, they pushed us in our 18-yard box and we didn't know how to come out. Without them, this game is really hard to play.

He is a former Yale classmate and Ramirez's college friend. "And so it felt to me like somebody had to get up and speak for her". Christine Blasey Ford - nor the witnesses who corroborate her testimony - can not be called an investigation", the lawyers said.

Two-time defending champion Tyrrell Hatton and US Open victor Brooks Koepka, also playing at Kingsbarns, were a further shot down at two-under while fellow Ryder Cup player Tommy Fleetwood was one-under.

A WOMAN WAS injured when she was hit by a wayward shot from defending champion Tyrrell Hatton at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Thursday, less than a week after a spectator was blinded in one eye at the Ryder Cup.

Hatton spoke to her when she returned to her feet and she was later seen walking to a golf cart and smiling as she was taken to an on-site medical centre.

Family of the woman, who did not wish to be named, told Hatton not to worry but the defending champion, who carded a two-under-par 70, said he felt very bad following the incident.

"Downwind was just as hard as into the wind, it was really tricky to control it and try to get the right distances". We were out by probably 20-30 yards some times but it just can't be helped. "Hung in there. Felt like I made a few mistakes but that happens, and just got to move on from it".
