US Women’s Open: Competing under ‘pressure’ gives Dryburgh heart

Written by on May 28, 2024

“That is obviously the goal every week, to try to win, so just take one day at a time, that old saying. It is so true, especially in a US Open – everyone is going to have a tough few holes I am sure over the four days, so just stay patient and try to take your chances when you can.”

Dryburgh says the Evian finish “gave me a lot of confidence”.

“It shows you that you can compete at the highest stage in the highest pressure situation in a major,” she said. “It came at an important time of the year last year as well.”

Dryburgh finished tied for 31st in last year’s US Open at Pebble Beach and made history in 2022 when she won the Japan Classic, ending an 11-year wait for a Scottish winner on the LPGA Tour.

She was also part of the European team that retained the Solheim Cup in Spain last year.

“I feel really comfortable on the tour and I feel like I really belong out here,” added Dryburgh.

“Even though Nelly Korda seems to be winning every event at the moment, I feel like I can still win out here and winning another event is a really big goal of mine.

“The putting I think is going to be key. The fast greens, very slow pace, you want to make sure you leave yourself below the hole if you can.

“I genuinely do putt quite well on fast greens, so hopefully that will be an advantage to me. You just have to stay patient as well.

“These greens, you get onto the green and go, ‘oh wow, this is interesting‘ pretty much on every green, so I think that will be the main challenge this week.”
