Leona Maguire gave her Main Tour hopes a boost by taking route 66 up the leaderboard at Ladies European Tour Qualifying School in Morocco.

Maguire was mesmeric at times, firing six birdies and an eagle on her way to an eight-under-par total, currently good enough for a share of third spot and just two strokes off the lead.

Speaking ahead of the event, Leona spoke confidently about the test Morocco would present and sure enough, her predictions are coming to fruition when it matters most:

“It’s my first time in Morocco and I feel good about my game and like the course. I think there’ll be a premium on good iron play, so I’ll be looking to give myself as many birdies as possible.”

Meanwhile sister Lisa added a 75 to her opening round of 74 to sit well down the board on five-over-par.

The Cavan professionals, both currently plying their trade on the Symetra Tour Stateside, are at Amelkis Golf Club in the hopes of surviving 162 holes right through to the end of Final Stage to earn one of 25 Ladies European Tour cards on offer.

Opportunity is aplenty this week, 7-10 December, where the top-5 players will earn category 5c status while those players finishing from 6-25 will claim category 8a membership of the LET for the 2019 season.

Austria’s Nadine Dreher leads the way on 10-under-par.
