Jersey golfer Olivia Jordan-Higgins could play on American and European Tours next season.

The 23-year-old has just completed her first year on the LPGA Futures Tour in America, finishing 48th on the money list.

She said: "I'm going in January to try and qualify for the European Tour, ideally I'd like to do both.

"Obviously if I get my full European Tour card I may end up staying over here [in Europe]."

Her performance in 2011 has already guaranteed a place on the Futures season in the US again next year.

A top 10 spot is needed to qualify for the full Tour though and that is the eventual target for Jordan-Higgins.

"Ideally I'd like to be on the LPGA Tour and I'm just going to keep working towards that," she told BBC Radio Jersey.

"Having completed this year I really believe I can do it and hopefully I'll get there one day."
