London - Cheyenne Woods, the niece of Tiger Woods, kept herself in reach of a spot at the British Open on Friday when she fired a five under par in the European Masters first round.

The 23-year-old Woods is chasing one of three places available this weekend to qualify for next week's major at St Andrews.

Her 67 put her in sixth place, four shots behind joint leaders Caroline Masson, who carded a tournament record nine-under, and South African Ashleigh Simon, who only returned from a hip injury two months ago.

"I felt like I played really steady. One bogey, I felt like I hit the ball well so overall it was a good day," said Woods, who celebrated her 23rd birthday on Thursday.

"I definitely learned last week through experiencing it, so this week I feel really good.

"I'm just going to continue to play steady and not worry about today's round.

"Tomorrow is a new day and I'll just continue my strong play the rest of the week."
