Maguire off to super start


CAVAN'S Leona Maguire shot a superb opening round of 69 at the European Masters, leaving her three under par.

Maguire, the world's top-ranked female amateur, holed four birdies and just one bogey to leave her three strokes behind clubhouse leader, France's Sophie Giquel-Bettan.

The Duke University student is playing on a sponsor's invitation for the event, which is being held at the Buckinghamshire Golf Club, outside London.
