Queen Elizabeth just made the trip north to her most beloved retreat, Balmoral, an ersatz Scottish castle sitting on 50,000 ravishing acres of the Highlands west of Aberdeen—and a world away from the unrelenting goldfish bowl of royal family life south of the border. This summer, as she always has, the queen has returned to Balmoral seeking the calm only it can provide. Observers wonder if this year will be her last time there as monarch.
"With this win, it builds up a lot of confidence for me and I'm looking forward to having more big tournaments and playing at next week's AIG Women's Open.
"Mike is always a big help to me, and I am so happy that I was able to win in Scotland and near his hometown of Glasgow."
Furue sank a 40-foot putt for birdie at the par-3 15th hole to take her first lead. She added birdies on her final two holes to join Thailand's Atthaya Thitikul (JTBC Classic) as the second LPGA Tour rookie to win a tournament this year.
