The prodigious Cavan talent was exemplary in her performance, dropping no shots on the way to a third round four-under-par 68 at pre-qualifying that sees her sit second on the board at 12-under-par.
Meanwhile sister Lisa carded her best round of the week, a one-under-par 71 to give her hopes a boost ahead of tomorrow’s final round.
Lisa fired four birdies on her way to a four-over-par tournament total and a share of 39th place, with the top-38 and ties qualifying to the crucial final stage examination.
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.
Sweden’s Linnea Strom leads the way after a stunning 62 but from an Irish perspective, the Maguires remain in the mix to fulfil a golfing destiny that was seemingly long predetermined.
