WATCH: The moment Leona seals her first professional title

Cavan golf star Leona Maguire held her nerve to claim her first ever professional title in style last night. 
The Ballyconnell woman holed a lengthy birdie in a sudden death play-off to lift the silverware at the Windsor Golf Classic in California. Leona was thrilled with her memorable victory in the Symetra Tour event and picked up a cheque for $22,500. An incredible final round of 67 saw Leona move to the head of the leaderboard at 12 under par, but she couldn't shake off Thai golfer Pajaree Anannarukarn, who forced the match to the play-off with her own birdie on the 18th.
A beautifully judged approach shot however set Leona up for victory.
"What a feeling," she tweeted. "Absolutely delighted to get my first professional win.
"Thank you everyone for all the lovely messages. Couldn't have done it without all the help from my family, friends."
