Stephanie Meadow represented Ireland when golf returned to the Olympics in 2016

Stephanie Meadow says that next year will play a second Olympics game for Ireland & # 39; in the majors of women.

The Tokyo Games have been moved back a year due to the Covid-19 pandemic, while the LPGA Tour plans to resume in mid-July.

"It is indescribable the feeling of representing your country on such a stage," said the Jordanstown player.

"It's very important to sponsors and to me – it's a big world scene."

The 28-year-old moved to the United States at the age of 14 to pursue a career in golf and she made her professional debut at the US Women's Open in 2014.

Meadow achieved two professional victories, including a homegrown win at the World Invitational at Galgorm Castle last year.

Rio Debut

Then she tasted golf four years ago in Rio returned to Games for the first time since 1904.

"Before 2016, we hadn't even dreamed of taking part in the Olympics," Meadow told Sportsound Extra Time.

"Other athletes had been dreaming since they were four – we dreamed of winning majors and then we suddenly have the chance to win a gold medal.

" So I hope to be back in 2021 – the Olympics will trump the majors for preparation next year. "
