Leona Maguire - European Tour player

Great result following her victory in the US last weekend. Im surprised at how little attention it's getting.
Needlesstosay..nothing & I mean nothing..is up on that useless Golfnet site.

She's not a pro -its the Official World Amateur rankings - she & her sister Lisa are in Duke University one of the top US Colleges.

Great to see and a disgrace no mention of it mentioned in any of the papers here. The two of them are very low key despite all their wins and accomplishments.
Out of interest what are they studying in Duke's? Also any idea what sort of swing speed they're pumping out?

It's scary to see what Lydia Ko is doing at 17 when you look at these girls achievements

Fair play to them getting educated before taking the leap into the pro game. They have good parents who wouldn't let them golf until all their school work was done and they both had outstanding leaving certs as far as I remember

Probably in the minority here... but I just don't understand why she is wasting her time in college. She is going to have a life playing golf. Turn pro and start your career. Look at what Lydia Ko is doing... having just turned 18. Do what Jordan Spieth did... quit college and start making your millions.
