Scarva girl Olivia Mehaffey was teeing it up with golfing royalty last week.

In her British Open debut at Woburn, she was drawn to play alongside former world number one Yani Tseng (left) and American Lizette Salas (right).

Tseng held the top spot in the world rankings for 109 consecutive weeks while Salas is a Solheim Cup player.

Olivia missed the cut by four shots but was more than happy with the experience of playing in her first major.

“It’s not everyday you play with a five times major winner and a two times Solheim Cup player in your first ever major,” Olivia said on Facebook.

“What a fun few days on the golf course. Not the result I wanted but lots of experience gained. Thanks to @donalscott for caddying and to some of my friends for coming to support and their text messages.”
