Mini marvel Leona Maguire became the youngest winner of the Hermitage Ladies Scratch Cup on Sunday - aged just 12.

The Cavan twin fired rounds of 75 and 72 at the classic Lucan track - just one over par - to win by four shots from Ireland international Maura Morrin.

Cut from three to two handicap for her win, Leona is just one half of a talented Slieve Russell pairing.

Her twin sister Lisa is also a two-handicapper and the golfing sisters will create history next month when they tee it up in the Northern Ireland Ladies Open in Belfast from June 1-3.

Proud Dad Declan said: "Leona is absolutely delighted. Conditions were very tough and she was so happy to win after finishing second in the Lahinch Scratch Cup just last week."

The Maguires have received a special invitation to play in the €200,000 Northern Ireland Ladies Open on the Ladies European Tour next month.
