Clara and Connie just outside top 20 after 

European championship first round in Austria

Scottish champion Clara Young (North Berwick), pictured below,  and Connie Jaffrey (Troon Ladies) are just outside the top 20 at the end of the first day of the European women's individual amateur golf championship at Murhof Golf Club, Austria.
They both shot one-under-par 71s to be five shots behind the leader, Junior Vagliano Trophy team player Agathe Laisne, a 16-year-old from the Racing Club de France.
Laisne had an eagle 2 at the par-4 fifth and an eagle 3 at par-5 seventh.
She leads by one from Ana Belac (Slovenia) and Aditi Ashok (Bangalore), the Indian girl who won the St Rule Trophy at St Andrews this year.
Jess Meek (Carnoustie Ladies) is joint 30th after a par-matching 72.
Germany-based Scot Rachael Taylor had a 75 for a share of 68th place while Hannah McCook (Grantown on Spey) and former Scottish champion Gabrielle MacDonald (Craigielaw) had disappointing rounds of 78 and 79 respectively
