She's always had the drive to do damage on the greens but as of September last year, Kinross Wolaroi talent Lolli Pasquali has been introduced to a new competitive landscape.
DuntryLeague announced that players of any age or gender would be able to mix it up with the men during the Saturday competition and Pasquali jumped at the opportunity to take on the big boys.
According to Lolli's mother Nicole, her daughter's been more than matching it with her dad (Marco) in the last few years and has had no issue notching promising results since the step-up in competition.
"She can outdrive her father," Mrs Pasquali said.
"Last Sunday I finished fourth overall out of about 160 players," Pasquali added.
While hard work will always go a long way to bringing athletes competitive joy, Pasquali's above average height has helped her develop that Happy Gilmore-esque weapon.
"I'm 168 centimetres tall... I can hit it pretty far," Pasquali said.
Height certainly helps but so does growing up around a particular sport and Pasquali says golf's always been a big part of her family's way of life.
"I've been playing forever... it's always been on the TV in the background," she said.
"It's a good sport to play for family time and I like that it's more focused on the individual and you have to depend on yourself."
Pasquali plays hockey in the winter but golf's an all-year-round activity and is certainly her more preferred sport out of the two.
Her love for the game is one of the reasons why the pandemic has been so challenging as a commitment to homeschooling meant no practice due to her weekly routine at Kinross being interrupted.
"I get to practice twice a week at school so I've still been able to play but haven't been able to train," she said.
"When school stopped, golf stopped."
Now that she's mixing it up with the men's, Pasquali's added a bit of self-pressure in order to ensure she continues to perform at a high level.
"I like to win so I've been pushing myself a bit... I'm quite competitive," she said.
While golf was always on TV at home, Pasquali hasn't gravitated towards any professional players but still has aspirations to do big things with the club in-hand.
"I want to travel more and play around the place... not just regionally," she said.
