LEONA MAGUIRE IMPROVED on her difficult round three outing to shoot a final round of two-under-par 70 at the ANA Inspiration.

Cavan’s Maguire recorded three birdies and a bogey on the par three fifth at Mission Hills in Rancho Mirage, California, to finish four-under-par for the tournament in a tie for 28th.

Maguire had been in contention after a superb opening round of 67 but dropped behind on Friday before a disastrous six bogeys on Saturday saw her fall well down the leaderboard. 

But the 26-year-old will be happy to have recorded a more consistent round on the final day, finding par on 14 holes.

Meanwhile, Antrim’s Stephanie Meadow shot an excellent five-under round of 67 to finish six under and jump up the leaderboard. Meadow edged into the top 20 thanks to a fine round which included four birdies and no bogeys.

Thailand’s Patty Tavatanakit landed her first major – and first LPGA title – following up her five-under par 67 on Saturday with a final round of 68 that gave her a two-shot cushion over New Zealand’s Lydia Ko.
