2019 Win Specials
Cavan sensation Leona Maguire has been made an 18/1 shot to be Women’s World Number 1 golfer by the end of next year.
As she prepares to bring down the curtain on a stellar amateur career, the 23-year-old has decided to swerve June’s Curtis Cup event in New York in the hope of making a dream professional debut at the US Women’s Open in Alabama at the end of May.
Maguire’s lengthy spell at the top of the women’s World Amateur Golf Rankings represents the longest stint as World Number 1 amateur by any player in history and she now has her sights set on reaching the same position in the professional ranks.
The two-time college player of the year at Duke University is 5/4 to win a Ladies European Tour event and 5/1 to win a major in 2019,
…while she is a hot odds-on shot at 1/4 to feature for Europe on Catriona Matthew’s Solheim Cup side for the 2019 showdown at Gleneagles.
