Maguire stars for Europe in Solheim Cup win

Leona Maguire became the most successful rookie of all time as Europe won the Solheim Cup last night.

The visitors beat the USA 15-13 in Ohio to retain the trophy.

Maguire enjoyed a 5 and 4 win over Jennifer Kupcho in the singles to maintain her unbeaten run.

The Cavan native collected four-and-a-half points from a possible five over the three days.

She says it was a memorable experience.

“It’s been an incredible week. It’s been a dream come true to be here, but to win a Solheim Cup on American soil, you can’t even imagine.

“We’ve had a phenomenal team from top to bottom this week, and this is an experience I will never ever forget.”
