Her handicap has been cut by 10 shots in the last few months and she is now playing off 22.

Olivia started playing six years ago, being coached at Woodhall Spa while playing at Boston with her dad Andrew.

This summer she joined in with the Ladies on a Wednesday and was very successful, winning the prestigious Bothamley Bowl, Lady Captain’s Rose Bowl and The Marian Smith Trophy - which also resulted in her winning the Jenny Cowan Trophy for the Most Improved Lady Golfer of the Year. Olivia and her dad also won August’s mixed Morley Trophy.

She has also been the recipient of a £100 Lincolnshire Golf Women’s Association bursary to go towards her golf lessons.
