The 2021 women’s amateur champion missed her first professional start, scoring 77-74 at the Scottish Women’s Open last week. But after a few days of thinking and fine-tuning her rider, she had a great start at the AIG Women’s Open.

“It cost 4:30 [a.m.] anxiety,” said Duncan, who was in the top three on Thursday. “I’m glad it’s over and I played well.

“Last week I got a little tired. It was obvious. My head was down. I just wasn’t in the mood to be honest. But yes, today I was in a good mood and played well.”



Duncan said she put a new head on her driver “and it seemed to sort out left and right.” She had four birdies, two scarecrows and a par-5 17 eagle.th.

Besides her driving, Duncan was impressed with her short game. “My putting is my weakness; It’s good to take a walk today,” she said. “Also gives me a bit of confidence for the next one, no matter how many days.

When she met with the media after the round, Duncan exclaimed, “Deja vu.” This is because she competed at this major last year as an amateur. Competing at Carnoustie, Duncan was also 4 short after the first round and two shots behind the 54-hole lead. She ended up drawing 10thclosing at an even par value of 72.

She didn’t make any money from this performance, but with a $7.3 million increase in her purse this week, she has a chance to cash in like a pro.

“I didn’t have a paycheck and I still feel like an amateur,” she said. “Yeah, I’m rolling with the punches and I’ll see where that takes me.”
