Leona Maguire having an unbelievable round. -9 playing the last


Didn’t see any of Leonas round , had to be hitting it pure no bogeys and -9 golfers are mad how it can click and look simple one day ,
Rory Seamus in contention equally , hopefully they all give it a rattle
I remember growing up and Irish golf lived off stories of ■■■ senior a few decent wins from ■■■ Junior , Smyth ,Darcy and Rafferty , different ball game now

How can you go -9 one day and +1 the next?!

Seamus flying but maybe in vain.

66 on last day nothing to be sniffed at by Seamus , Leona will be disappointed with that last round pointless saying otherwise, but she’s proven she’s not a one hit wonder
RM doing what he does
Think it’s been a fabulous year for golfers from this island


I would be more than happy with +19 anyday.
-9 was just an incredible score

Did the tournament Leona just missed out on have the richest purse on Ladies’ golf or did I read something incorrectly?

think it did , 2 million winners check im sure is what L Ko recieved

Just checked there, I think it has the highest winner’s cheque but 2nd highest overall purse.

Great stuff from our golfers, what a year best ever yet perhsps? And shout-out to LK, top of the world from a small isolated nation. Bad luck Leone, nothing in it

Leona Maguire going well again in Marbella. I can imagine that the field would not be as strong as what she’s been up against recently.

Great effort by Leona Maguire losing out by two shots in the end ,finishing fourth, only caught bits and pieces of the tournament , from what I did catch Leona will possibly feel this is one that got away

The field was probably somewhat stronger than I first thought. I hear she is now Europe’s highest ranked ladies golfer. Is that true?

True. Top European ranked 11 in the World.

That really is fantastic progress.

Only 8 Europeans in the Women’s Top 50. 4 of them Swedish.

Top 10 made up of Yanks and Koreans?

I’d have thought that there would be more Koreans and Americans ahead of her.
There must be something in the DNA of Korean women, though, when it comes to golf. Australian Minjee Lee was born to Korean parents and Lydia Ko (NZ) was born in Korea, moving to NZ when she was four (all according to Wiki).
