Leona Maguire won the rookies fight on the final day of Solheim Cup action when the Cavan golfer defeated American Jennifer Kupcho 5&4 in the singles.
A rules incident benefited the Americans at the afternoon four-balls, but it was a situation neither team wanted.
Leona Maguire received a massive vote of confidence from European skipper Catriona Matthew today and made a dream debut at Mel Reid's side against superstar sisters Nelly and Jessica Korda in the opening session of the Solheim Cup four-a-side in Ohio.
Team Europe rookie Mel Reid said she was thrilled to partner Leona Maguire on the unenviable task of facing the "golden pairing" of Team USA's Korda sisters.
Nelly Korda birdy her last six holes to score a 9 under par 63 and after the second round of the Women's PGA Championship on Friday, she won by one stroke over the American Lizette Salas.
Despite an excellent 62 from Nelly Korda, Leona Maguire remains in the final round of the Meijer LPGA Classic on Saturday.
