This is a great season for Rookie Leona Maguire. A win with three top 10s and the best T2 of the season at the LOTTE Championship would be the icing on the cake. After the first round of the Grand Rapids, Meijer Lpga Classic on Thursday in MI, that goal seemed to be more achievable than before, with Maguire co-leaders NASA Hatoka and Emma Darwin leading the floors with 7 playing under each of Hull, 65.
It was the practice of playing courses in Ireland that helped Maguire to achieve such a low score.
“It reminds me of a lot of my countries, where I could grow a lot of golf courses. Tree-line courses at Elm Hermitage and Elm Park that I knew when I was a junior golfer. I have an Irish caddy in the bag and it said the same thing. It’s nice to have this familiar identity, even though it’s a new place. “ Maguire said. “Since last week in San Francisco I have been trying to increase my speed. “
Maguire completed T9 at the LPGA Mediechel Championships in San Francisco last week and played with the best group throughout the week.
Earnings were very fast compared to last week. I felt like my game was in great shape from there, and it’s just an incident where I’ll been watching the golf course for the last few days and trying to relax and take the space I left on top of my game starting this week ”, Said Maguire. “I am very happy with my start and hope to be able to start again tomorrow. “
After completing the stress-free first round at the Major LPGA Classic she experienced “Very regular”, The 26-year-old mentioned the rest of the week’s goals, including staying confident.
“This is one of those situations where there are many bird sanctuaries. You know everyone plays low. You can’t really stop and look behind you. Keep your feet on the ground and move on. ”, Said Maguire. “I feel more and more comfortable, I think. I’ve been part of a few big groups, especially the last few weeks. I’m very happy with the way I handled this and stick to my own game plan. ”
