There were mixed fortunes for Stephanie Meadow and Leona Maguire as the pair teed-off their 2020 LPGA Tour campaigns at the first playing of the Gainbridge LPGA at Boca Rio, the first full-field event of the season.

Meadow showed little signs of rust as she carded 17 pars and a birdie in a blemish-free one-under par round of 71.

The Jordanstown professional found 11 of 18 greens but needed just 28 putts and finds herself inside the top-20 on day one in Florida.

Paddy Tavatanakit and Yui Kawamoto fired four-under par rounds of 68 to hold the clubhouse lead with Tour star, Jessica Korda hot on the course at five-under par through 12 holes at the time of writing.
