TEST Valley professional Claire Duffy claimed a share of third place at the Glenmuir Women’s PGA Professional Championship.

Duffy travelled to Blairgowrie Golf Club, in Scotland, for the event but got off to a poor start, managing just one birdie during an opening round of 80 (+7).

Duffy hit back brilliantly during the second round, carding the second-best round of the event, a two-under-par round of 71 that included four birdies, to move up to third.
