Maguire close

America's Beth Allen won her first Ladies European Tour title in the ISPS Handa European Masters after Irish amateur Leona Maguire threatened to pull off a famous victory.

Maguire had moved into a share of the lead with her sixth birdie of the day on the 17th, but was unable to save par from a greenside bunker on the last to force a play-off. The 20-year-old from County Cavan had to settle for a closing round of 69 to finish 11 under par, one behind Allen who carded a 67.
