Ashleigh Buhai on course to add to South African success at Muirfield

Though still with some work to do, Ashleigh Buhai is on course to add to South African success at the home of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers.

After a brilliant course-record seven-under-par 64 that was set up by a burst of five birdies in the first seven holes, the 33-year-old from Johannesburg leads the historic AIG Women’s Open by a commanding five shots on 14-under-par.

It’s Buhai’s title to lose, but, at the same time, she is heading into uncharted territory. In 42 previous major appearances, she’s recorded just one top-10 finish. That was in this event in 2019 at Woburn, where she led by three shots at the halfway stage before ending up in fifth spot.
