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.
