ANN Robathan is praying it is third time lucky after being a losing finalist twice in the Ladies Observer Shield.
The Accrington golfer takes on team-mate Lil Dykes at Rishton GC on Sunday, hoping it will be her day.
The 47-year-old lost out in 2002 and then suffered a second final defeat last year to another Accrington opponent Laura Banks.
"I am hoping it is third time lucky as I will do anything to win on Sunday," said Ann, who owns LJ’s Deli in Baxenden.
"I was nervous in 2002 when I was in the final but last year I felt okay and it was so close. Now it is about time I won it!"
Ann, a former Lady Captain at Accrington, only took up golf 13 years ago after playing squash for a lot of years. In her first final, her handicap was 12 but she is now down to seven.
"I have been playing quite well this year. I won the individual gross prize in the ELGA mixed foursomes at Pleasington with Chris Nuttall a few weeks ago and we came second in the Mixed Open at Accrington last weekend.
"And I have played quite well in the Observer Shield so far.
"I came up against one of my closest friends Julie Walker in the quarter-final which was hard.
"It was awful playing a friend and I beat her on the 19th. I played Yvette Cairns from Rossendale in the semi-finals at Baxenden and won 4&3. But it is all about the day - I know that - and not getting nervous."
Ann’s caddy with be Accrington’s Lady President Margaret Birtwell - who caddied for her last year.
"She is my No 1 caddy and will be desperate for me to finally win it!"
Ann comes up against Lil Dykes, another Accrington team-member, who has got a former international as her caddy.
Ex-England hockey player Val Robinson will be helping her around the course.
"Lil is a good hockey player too and used to teach my son hockey," said Ann. "We get on and she is a lovely lady and it is all about who plays well on the day."
The final starts at 1.30pm on Sunday at Rishton Golf Club.
