Brady shows his human side (and nearly his backside) to the world

As athletes go, Tom Brady is about as unrelatable as they come, with a net worth of around $200 million & married to a supermodel, but he was one of us on Sunday night

It wasn’t the reunion the Maguire twins would have had in mind as the pair’s return to the fairways as competitors on the Ladies European Tour ended in opening day disappointment at the Lalla Meryem Cup.

With Lisa and Leona arriving in Morocco refreshed and raring to go after a week off at home, hopes would have been high that the Cavan professionals could hit the ground running this afternoon. Unfortunately, however, both struggled, with Leona returning a three-over par 76 while Lisa went five shots worse in an opening 81.

The pair have enjoyed very different levels of success since turning professional under the Modest! Golf umbrella last summer, and the start is particularly unfortunate for Lisa who was hoping to take advantage of an invite to Agadir.

Time is on their side but with the lead already out to seven-under par on the Blue Course at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam, it will take a mammoth effort from the pair to turn their fortunes around.

There were no such fears at the top for Lina Boqvist who claimed a two-shot lead over fellow Swede Camilla Lennarth and past champion Nuria Iturrios after carding a stunning 66 in round one.

The 27-year-old from Gislaved fired six birdies on the front nine and led at eight-under-par after two more birdies at the 12th and 14th holes on the newly renovated Blue Course. She made consecutive bogeys on the par-5 15th and par-4 16th holes, but finished with a stylish birdie on the par-4 18th hole to complete her best score in five seasons on the Ladies European Tour.

“It was a great round and I think I played the best golf of my career on the LET. There were three missed greens, one up-and-down and two bogeys, but nine birdies, so it was fantastic,” she said.
