While it may not register with some of the crypto-sexist caveman types who may lurk in our midst () -Leona Maguire must get formal forum recognition for her brilliant result in the latest LPGA event in Hawaii. Though effectively still in her rookie year on tour -she has clocked up some highly promising performances . Today saw her finish tied 2nd on 21 under par -finishing ahead of a host of former major winners and world no.1s. She signed off with a flourish with an eagle at the last and pockets a cheque for 126,000 dollars. Should do her share to keep Irish sport to the 'fore ' on the world stage. Also well done to Shane Lowry who had another high finish today and looks to be playing to a higher level of late after a quiet spell. Chances of getting into the Ryder Cup team greatly increased.
