Olivia Mehaffey is back on top.

After a period out of action due to illness, the Scarva girl showed it has done little to hold her back, winning the Irish Women’s Open Stroke Play Championship by EIGHT clear shots at the Island Golf Club in Dublin.

It’s the world number 10’s first win of the season, following on from top five finishes in South America and Portugal.

Olivia led after every round in Dublin, opening with a five under par 69 and following that up with a one over par 75 and a final round 79 in tough, windy conditions.

Olivia finished well clear of second placed Chloe Ryan.
