Ireland’s Leona Maguire carded a three-under 68 in the second round of the Canberra Classic in Australia to move to five under and a share of ninth position going into the final round.

Playing her second Ladies’ European Tour event, the Cavan golfer made an eagle three on the closing hole at the Royal Canberra Golf Club to complete a fine back nine of three-under 33 that also included back-to-back birdies on the 14th and 15th holes.

Maguire’s second bogey of the day had come at the short 11th hole after a front nine that included a bogey on the fifth and birdie on the par-five ninth, meaning she played the par-fives in four under after making a par at the long first hole.

Maguire is tied with Sweden’s Lina Boqvist on five under, with Slovenia’s Katja Pogacar (64) and Anne Van Dam (63) of the Netherlands leading the way on 11 under after two rounds. Scotland’s Carly Booth is a shot behind on 10 under after carding a 65.
