Brilliant fightback from Maguire Down Under as Cavan star cards superb 68
The 24-year-old has upped the ante at her first European Tour event as a pro.

CAVAN’S LEONA MAGUIRE has powered up the leaderboard at the Pacific Bay Resort Australian Ladies Classic, her first European Tour event as a professional.

The 24-year-old carded a brilliant four-under par 68 in New South Wales, showing clear signs of improvement from a rather slow start. 

Maguire, who turned pro last summer after completing her studies Stateside, was 12 shots off the pace after shooting a 75 yesterday in tough conditions, adding to her opening round 73.

She’s found her feet on the third day however, upping the ante as she bagged five birdies en route to a tie for 10th on level par.

Six off the leader, Sweden’s Madelene Sagstrom tops the charts after she also carded a 68 in an inspiring rise through the ranks.

While Sagstrom is in the ideal position for a first European Tour title, the chasing pack are just one shot behind.
