Twins Leona and Lisa Maguire will begin their bids for Ladies European Tour cards in 72-hole Pre-Qualifying for the Lalla Aicha Tour School finals in Morocco today.

The Slieve Russell pair (24) will be hoping to make it through to the 90-hole Final Stage at the same venue from December 16-20.

Pleased to finish tied 18th on her professional LET debut in the Andalucia Open de Espana last month, Leona told “The timing of the Spanish event was really good for me, as I had spent a lot of time in the United States. 

"It was a great event and nice to get some competitive rounds in. I’ve been working on a few things over the last week at home in Cavan. It’s nice to be back in Europe and closer to home.

“It’s my first time in Morocco and I feel good about my game and like the course. I think there’ll be a premium on good iron play, so I’ll be looking to give myself as many birdies as possible.”

Lisa added: “I’ve been at home practising to get ready for this and it would be nice to play in Europe next year, together with Leona. 

"We got a taste of it as amateurs as we received several invites, so I’m hoping this week goes as well as possible and we get through to the final stage.”


The number of players who will progress to the final stage will be confirmed later today.
