LEONA MAGUIRE AND Stephanie Meadow both enjoyed bright starts at the Shoprite LPGA Classic on Friday.

Cavan star Maguire sits two shots off the lead after opening with a 67 in New Jersey.

This tournament is a happy hunting ground for the 26-year-old, who made her professional debut at the Shoprite showdown in 2018. She finished eight-under in a tie for 15th then.

She is currently four-under and tied for 11th, having opened with a bogey while carding birdies on the 3rd, 4th, 8th, 9th and 18th.

Meadow is two shots back after an opening-round 69.

The Antrim native recovered well from a double bogey on her first, finishing strongly with four birdies in her final seven holes.
