INVERNESS teenager Summer Elliott claimed another major victory this year when she won the Donald Ross Junior Open at Royal Dornoch.

The Inverness Golf Club and Nairn Golf Club member claimed victory by three shots to lift the trophy in a male dominated field at the Sutherland course last weekend.

She won the competition with +6, with scores of 75 and 72 to give her a total score of 147.

Callum Withers was in second place on +9 with scores of 75 in both rounds to finish on 150.

Alex Innes of Royal Dornoch was in third place on +17 with scores of 83 and 75 to finish on 158.

Elliott has had an incredible 2023 so far winning a number of major titles, including the Stephen Gallacher Vase, Paul Lawrie Junior Quaich and Barrie Douglas Scottish Junior Masters.

In addition this year, she became the first woman to win the Inverness Golf Club Junior Championship.

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.
