Belfast ace Olivia Mehaffey will become one of the first women to ever play a competitive round of golf at Augusta National after she qualified for the final round of the first Augusta National Women's Amateur Championship.

The Royal County Down star is six shots behind the world's leading amateur Jennifer Kupcho after two rounds, heading into tomorrow's final day at Augusta.

But the 21-year-old will be making history and getting an incredible experience when she tees off at one of the world's most famous golf courses, which only allowed women to become members back in 2012.

The final round will be shown live on Sky Sports tomorrow from 5pm.
