US Women's Open — Slieve Russell amateur Leona Maguire bogeyed her final hole to miss the cut by one stroke in the US Women's Open at CordeVale in California.

The world No 2 and Duke University star, 21, bogeyed three of her first five holes to go five over for the championship but then birdied the 15th and 17th to sit a stroke inside the projected cut mark with nine holes to play.

Having started at the 10th, a bogey at the first left her on the mark and she then dropped another shot at the last to add a 75 to her opening 74 and miss out by the slimmest of margins.
