Olivia Mehaffey has added yet another title to her growing collection by winning the Irish Women’s Close title at Lahinch Golf Club.

The Scarva teenager is gearing up for next month’s Curtis Cup and this weekend once again showed that she’s on top form by claiming the title.

And Mehaffey did it in style, beating fellow Ulster girl Louise Coffey in Sunday’s final,

Her victory was helped by a stunning eagle at the par five 15th - when Olivia smashed her way to the green in two - leaving just a three foot putt to win the hole.

The victory adds to the Irish and Welsh Open Stroke Play titles that Olivia picked up earlier in the year.
