Stephanie has determination and talent to bounce back
Young Northern Ireland golfer Stephanie Meadow now knows the contrasting fortunes that so often accompany elite sporting endeavour. Having finished third in her first professional tournament, the US Open, she has just lost out on the chance to win her golf tour card in the most excruciating circumstances after a marathon play-off.
While this was devastating for her, there is no doubt she has the will and determination to try and try again until she succeeds. These qualities, allied to her undoubted talent, will stand her in good stead in her future career and one day, maybe not too distant, we could be heralding another local Major winner.
