When Leona Maguire was dreaming about one day competing on the LPGA Tour, she could’ve hardly imagined a rookie year like 2020 turned out to be. After hitting the ground running with a a tied-4th result at the ISPS Vic HANDA Open, Maguire’s momentum was stopped in its tracks as Covid-19 decimated Tour schedules worldwide.

We hope you enjoy the listen.
