Maguire Is No Ordinary Rookie
She has not finished outside the top 15 in her last seven starts on the LPGA Tour. For Leona Maguire, that includes a career-best finish in a major, a tie for sixth at the Amundi Evian Championship in July.
Throw in a multitude of team appearances as an amateur between the Curtis Cup, Junior Solheim Cup, Espirito Santo Trophy, Junior Ryder Cup and Vagliano Trophy, and Maguire doesn’t seem like an ordinary Solheim Cup rookie.
“This is something I’ve looked forward to for a long time,” said Maguire, a 2019 Symetra Tour graduate. “Got a little glimpse of it when I played Junior Solheims and really good to be part of the big team now. I think there will be a lot of good memories this week. Hopefully some will be on the golf course. But I think a lot of them will be off the golf course, too.”September 6, 2021 2:29 pm
