Three-way tie in Scottish Open
Florentyna Parker fired a three-under 69 to join Carly Booth and Stacy Lee Bregman in a three-way tie at the Ladies Scottish Open.
France's Anne-Lise Caudal had enjoyed a two-shot lead from Sarah Kemp overnight, but both went round in a disappointing 76 on Friday to fall away.
Having made the turn at one-under, Caudal suffered four straight bogeys and then a fifth on the 17th hole to drop away.
"It's too cold; it wasn't easy out there," said Caudal on the Ladies European Tour website. "I didn't putt very well today and I had a bad shot on 17."
Kemp was undone by a double bogey on the 16th.
That opened the door for a new set of leaders to emerge, and Parker propelled herself to the top with a best of the day round of 69.
An eagle on the par-five sixth had her fiiring, and although she bogeyed two holes on the back nine, three birdies had her heading in the right direction.
Scotland's Booth birdied the 18th to ensure herself a share of the lead with a round of 71, while South African Bregman had been on course for the outright lead until a bogey on the 14th.
The trio sit one shot clear of Wales' Tara Davies, who went round in 72, while Caudal is level with Italian Diana Luna at one under par.
Laura Davies, hunting an 80th career title, recovered from an opening round 74 with a 70 to sit three shots off the lead.
