It's not been all one big fairy story for the golfer known as 'Chill' since the US adventure began. The fact that she managed to maintain her card this year was made all the more amazing by the fact that a car crash in November 2010 threatened to end her career just as it was getting going.

In the two years since she left behind her family and friends to go it alone she has broken the tour low score record by shooting 61 and in the process becoming the youngest player ever to hold that accolade. A nine hole score of 29 saw a previous honour held by the great Lorena Ochoa also fall. But perhaps most importantly for her at this stage she has managed to keep her tour card in both seasons.

I think I've held my own. I've had two steady years I've learnt a lot and I'm still learning," Connor explains.

"Obviously my short term goals are to get my full cards on the European and LPGA tours but one of my main aims is the Olympics," Connor explains.
