Cavan's Leona Maguire closed with a bogey-free 69 to finish a four-way tie for third on her Symetra Tour debut in Illinois.

The former Duke University star (23) picked up $6,574 after she made three birdies in the final round to finish just three strokes outside a playoff for the Forsyth Classic at Hilary Point Golf Club in Decatur on 10-under par.

She has now broken 70 in her first six rounds as a professional, finishing tied 15th on her professional debut in the LPGA Tour's ShopRite LPGA Classic in Atlantic City in her previous start.

She also had a hole-in-one in her second round.

It was also another solid week for Stephanie Meadow, fifth in the money-list race for 10 PGA Tour cards, as she shot a 69 to finish tied for seventh on nine-under.

Germany's Isi Gabsa won the tournament in a playoff, carding a 70 to tie with American Jillian Hollis, who shot 68 on 13-under par before winning a playoff at the fourth tie hole.
