Meadow will take to the course with Michelle Koh (Malaysia) and Ladies European Tour (LET) player Nanna Koerstz Madsen of Denmark. The top ranked golfers will be competing in Rio this week as world number 1 Lydia Ko, number 2 Ariya Jutanugarn and number 3 Brooke Henderson are ready to embrace the Olympic course, turning all hope to securing one of the three coveted medals on offer.
