Leona Maguire says she's delighted to have secured her first victory as a professional golfer.
The 24-year-old Cavan woman shot a final round 65 at the Windsor Golf Classic in California to take the tournament to a playoff.
She then defeated Pajaree Anannarukarn on the first extra hole to seal the victory.
