As Stephanie Meadow eases into a seventh year on tour, she is hoping to savour a romantic tale that an unforgiving sport of inches can sometimes throw up.

"Golf is brutal, it can tear you down… you need the right perspective. You have to remind yourself that you're doing what you've always dreamed of," said Meadow, who celebrated her 29th birthday in January.

The Arizona-based Jordanstown woman had a front-row seat last summer when Germany's Sophia Popov sprung from a ranking of 304 to lift the women's Open Championship. It was a sporting fairytale of hope amid all the gloom of 2020.
