Last November, after nearly two years plying her trade as a professional golfer, Lisa Maguire made the brave decision to swap a life on the fairways for a career off it. One half of the famous Maguire twins from Cavan, there was a time when Lisa outplayed her sister during a glittering amateur career as the pair rose through the ranks looking destined to one day play together on the LPGA Tour.
Yet, where Leona prospered with two professional victories on the Symetra Tour, Lisa largely struggled to replicate her amateur form during a tough introduction to the competitive cauldron of professional golf.
In our latest podcast, we caught up with Lisa who’s entered a new stage in her journey with Niall Horan’s Modest! Golf Management. In a candid conversation with IGM’s Peter Finnan, the 25-year old reflects on her amateur career, opens up about the difficulties she experienced when a pay cheque was introduced to the equation and discusses a bright future very much within the game of golf.
