Cavan native Maguire went into today's final round tied in fourth place and produced a brilliant round of 69, that included six birdies, to finish on 11-under-par and just one behind eventual winner Beth Allen from America.

Maguire, the number one amateur in the world, was level with Allen going down the 18th but a bogey meant she missed out on a chance of a play-off.

At just 20 years of age, the future is bright for one of Ireland's golfing talents.
