Laura Davies, of Britain, and Helen Alfredsson, of Sweden, will start as the favourites for the Skoda Scottish Open which begins at Dalmahoy today. Both Davies and Alfredsson had encouraging victories last weekend: Davies won the Irish Open by eight strokes while Alfredsson, already a winner in Europe this season, took the Ping/Welch's title in Massachusetts. All 10 members of Europe's winning Solheim Cup side will be returning to the scene of their stirring victory two years ago for the championship which was last played in 1988, when Scotland's Cathy Panton-Lewis won the title.
