Scarva girl Olivia Mehaffey has been selected to represent Europe in the Junior Solheim Cup.

After missing out on an automatic spot, Olivia was hoping for a captain’s pick and got the call-up when European Captain Iben Tinning announced her team on Monday morning.

The PING Junior Solheim Cup is to be played at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club on September 14-15, just a few days before the main Solheim Cup takes place at the same venue.
