Hole-in-one sets up shock victory for Mehaffey

Published 22/06/2013 | 05:00

Teenage sensation Olivia Mehaffey caused one of the biggest upsets in the history of the Irish Ladies Close Championship at Ballybunion when she knocked out Curtis Cup star Stephanie Meadow.

And Mehaffey,the Irish girls stroke play champion from Royal County Down, had a hole-in-one at the eighth on her way to a last-green victory. It was a stunning game with the players boasting a better-ball score of eight-under-par.

Mehaffey, chosen for the Junior Vagliano Trophy team next weekend, established a four-hole advantage after 12, but Meadow,the 2012 British champion from Royal Portrush, then played sub-par golf to be just one behind playing the last. The teenager won that hole to book her place in the last 16 with a two-up victory.

This was a particularly surprising result in that 21-year-old Meadow had qualified the previous day with a score 21 strokes better than Mehaffey, who will now clash with former champion Karen Delaney

Lisa Maguire easily moved into round two with a 4&3 win over Jessica Ross and she will now face her twin sister Leona, the reigning champion for a quarter-final spot.

Local hope Emma O'Driscoll was bundled out 4&2 by Jessica Carty, while second qualifier Chloe Ryan made no mistake in disposing of former Irish Girls champion Victoria Bradshaw.
