IRELAND’S LEONA MAGUIRE is sitting nicely on the second day of the ISPS Handa World Invitational at Galgorm Castle.

The Cavan golfer was the star of the show in County Antrim yesterday, shooting a five-under 68.

And 27-year-old Maguire has followed that up with a three-under 69 in the second round, leaving her on eight-under overall — tied for fifth place with Peiyan Chien of Chinese Taipei and England’s Georgia Hall.

America’s Amanda Doherty holds the lead heading into the weekend on 11-under.

Meanwhile, 2019 winner Stephanie Meadow, who shot a 76 on the opening day, missed the cut after a one-under 72 left over on three-over overall.

Similarly, it was a frustrating day for Belfast golfer Olivia Mehaffey, who also missed the cut after today’s 80 left her on 10-over.
