Australians Whitney Hillier (8th) and Stephanie Kyriacou (10th) have recorded top tens in the Ladies European Tour’s Didriksons Skafto Open on the island of Skafto in Sweden.

For the 30-year-old West Australian, Hillier, it was her first top ten in her last 23 starts on the Ladies European Tour and follows a very much improved showing when 15th in the recent combined LPGA Tour event, the Scottish Open.

Hillier finished six shots from the winner, Pauline Roussin Bouchard of France but consecutive weekend rounds of 65 saw a huge jump from her opening round of 72 in the low scoring layout.

For Kyriacou, her 10th place continues a superb season in Europe, this her 6th top ten in 12 starts this season including the win she posted at the Big Green Egg Open in the Netherlands in July. The NSW golfer remains in second position in the Race to Costa Del Sol standings.
