Another top ten collegiate finish for Leona Maguire

There was yet another top 10 finish for Duke University’s Leona Maguire at the Windy City Collegiate Championship as her Duke team finished 5th overall.

The senior carded a two-over-par, 215, on her way to placing tied ninth overall at the 6,200-yard, par 71 Northmoor Country Club in Highland Park, Ill.

Maguire posted rounds of 71, 71 and 73 and registered her 28th career top 10 placement, which currently ranks her fourth on Duke’s all-time charts.

In Tuesday’s round, Maguire couldn’t get much going but battled all day and collected 10 straight pars to open, but then went through a stretch where she bogeyed three consecutive holes.  Maguire closed strong with an up-and-down on the par three 17th, was on the green in two on 18, and tapped in for her lone birdie of the day.  She hit 12 greens, 10 fairways and rolled 30 putts.  Maguire also tied for second overall with 39 pars over the 54 holes.

Maddie McCrary of Oklahoma State won the individual title with a six-under-par, 207, as she closed with a two-under, 69, Tuesday.
