Launch price tickets for the ISPS Handa World Invitational presented by Modest! Golf will be ending today (Wednesday 20 April) at midnight.
Leona Maguire will play in front of her home fans for the first time since making history as the first ever Irish winner on the LPGA Tour when she tees it up at Galgorm Castle and Massereene from August 11-14.
The 27-year-old became the first Irish player to win on the LPGA Tour in February, claiming a three-stroke victory over Lexi Thompson at the LPGA Drive On Championship and sparking celebrations across the island of Ireland.
Maguire, who also put in a starring performance in Europe’s Solheim Cup victory last year where she won 4.5 points from a possible five, is sure to receive a rapturous welcome when she returns to compete on home soil.
“I’m really excited to return to the ISPS HANDA World Invitational,” said Maguire. “I was disappointed I couldn’t make it last year, but I watched it on TV and it looked like a fantastic week, and I heard great things from the players who were there.
“It’s been an incredible six months for me and I’ve received so much support from home since winning on the LPGA Tour, so to go back and play in front of the Irish fans for the first time at Galgorm and Massereene is going to be incredible. I can’t wait.”
For Maguire, it will be a chance to emulate her compatriot Stephanie Meadow, who won the inaugural edition of the event in front of her home fans in 2019, prior to it becoming an LPGA Tour and Ladies European Tour sanctioned event.
