An international field includes Beth Allen and Cristie Kerr from the USA with Anna Nordqvist (Sweden) and So Yeon Ryu (Korea) two other names to watch out for.  There’s also plenty of home interest with Kylie Henry, Gemma Dryburgh, Kelsey MacDonald, Catriona Matthew and Pamela Pretswell-Asher among the Scottish players confirmed.
