Ballyconnell superstar Leona Maguire has secured her card for the Ladies European Tour after she dramatically clinched the fifth and final spot at Qualifying School in Morocco this afternoon.

Sitting in tied sixth place entering the final day, with five set to gain their card, the pressure was on the 24-year-old as she ended up in a battle with Sara Nilsson for the final spot.

A round of 67, including five birdies, saw Maguire reach 13-under but a birdie from Nilsson on the 18th forced a play-off.

The duo played the 18th hole again and Maguire nailed it this time, sinking a 15-footer to secure her card.
