INVERNESS teenager Summer Elliott has won the 2023 Scottish Golf Girls' Order of Merit after winning a number of tournaments last year.

The Inverness Golf Club member finished well clear at the top as she finished the year on 925 points. She was well clear of Evie McCallum of Dunfermline on 780 points with Ruby Watt of Paul Lawrie Golf Centre in third place on 590 points.

Elliott was in stunning form during 2023 as she claimed major tournament wins such as the Stephen Gallacher Vase, the Paul Lawrie Junior Quaich and Barrie Douglas Scottish Junior Masters.

In addition, she made history when she became the first girl to win the Inverness Golf Club Junior Championship.

She also stormed to victory at the Donald Ross Junior Open at Royal Dornoch in October.

Elliott was called up to the Scotland squad for the European Girls’ Team Championship at Golf Club d’Hossegor in France last July.

She has also been named in Scottish Golf's squad selection for the 2023/24 season as part of the girls' performance squad.

Elliott recently secured a major sponsorship deal with Springfield Properties in her ambitions to become a professional golfer.
