LEONA MAGUIRE AND Stephanie both endured difficult opening rounds as they got their seasons underway at the Gainbridge LPGA in Florida.

Maguire carded a one-over 73 while Meadow finished her opening round on three-over 75, both well off the pace of the current leader Lydia Ko of New Zealand who holds a two-shot lead on nine-under 63.

Cavan native Maguire played out a par-laden first round which also included two bogeys on the fifth and eighth holes. She also picked up a birdie on the 17th.

Meadow also had plenty of pars but her round was hampered by a double-bogey on the seventh and a bogey on the 10th hole.

USA’s Danielle Kang is currently second on the leaderboard after a seven-under 65 while Aditi Ashok of India is one shot further back.
