Caithness Earns Spot In British Women's Open

BERKSHIRE, England --- Georgia rising sophomore Krystle Caithness secured a spot in the field for the 2008 Ricoh Women's British Open by shooting 2-under 70 in a qualifier at the Berkshire Golf Club on Monday.


Caithness, a native of St. Andrews, Scotland, is one of six amateurs among the 144 golfers in the field for the Grand Slam event.


Caithness opens play at Sunningdale Golf Club on Thursday morning with a 10:21 a.m. (5:21 a.m. ET) tee time following an incredibly steady qualifier earlier this week. She posted pars at the first five holes before a birdie at No. 6. After turning at 1-under, Caithness gave a stroke back with a bogey at No. 10 but rebounded with an eagle-3 at No. 16, a the 452-yard, par-5.


Caithness earned honorable mention All-America honors following a stellar initial campaign in Athens. She led the Bulldogs with 11 par-or-better rounds in 37 loops played in 2007-08 and also tied for team-high honors with four top-10 and six top-20 individual finishes.


Reilley Rankin, a two-time All-American for Georgia who paced the Bulldogs to the 2001 NCAA Championship, also is in the British Open field. Rankin finished fourth at last year's event contested on The Old Course in St. Andrews.
