Realtime recruitment sponsors Olivia Mehaffey ahead of appearance at ISPS HANDA World Invitational
Realtime Recruitment are delighted to announce they are now sponsoring top Irish golfer, Olivia Mehaffey.
Olivia turned professional this year after an extremely impressive amateur career in the USA, becoming one of the most successful NCAA golfers of all time. At Arizona State University, Olivia is only the third, four-time All American in ASU history. Her representative honours include numerous caps for Ireland as well as being a two-time Curtis Cup and Palmer Cup player.
The 23-year-old will take part in the ISPS HANDA World Invitational this week in Galgorm where she will tee up alongside some of the best players in the game.
Olivia made it clear that a connection to home was a necessity when it came to her sponsors. Realtime Recruitment have offices in both Dublin and Belfast, and founders Declan and Niall McNiff, who are from Newcastle were brought up on her home course, Royal County Down.
Declan McNiff, Managing Director of Realtime Recruitment, commented, “We are delighted to support Olivia on her professional journey, she has actually wanted to be a Golf Pro since she was 6 years old. Olivia is an amazing person with a world class talent, and she is going to inspire so many young females to chase their dreams. There is great synergy between Olivia’s passion to improve female participation in golf, and Realtime’s passion to get more females involved in tech. My brother Niall and I both love golf, so the fact that we can support Olivia, a fellow County Down golfer on her journey on the world stage just adds to the magic.”
Olivia intends to play tournaments in both the US and in Europe through sponsor invites until she heads to Q-School in November with the aim of gaining full status on the LPGA Tour.
