Cornwall's Sarah-Jane Boyd struggled on the back nine as she finished on five over at the end of her first round at the Women's British Open at St Andrews.

Boyd birdied her first hole and looked well set at level par after 12 holes.

But a triple-bogey seven at the 13th ruined her scorecard and bogeys at the 14th and 16th saw her card a round of 77 to leave her well off the pace.

Boyd will need a real upturn in form in order to make the cut when her second round starts at 1506 BST on Friday.
