In one of the most nail-biting finishes the Aramco Team Series presented by PIF has ever witnessed, Leona Maguire delivered an electrifying performance to become the first Irishwoman to secure a victory on the Ladies European Tour (LET).

On the team front, Team Nadaud clinched the title after an intense three-hole play-off against Team Hall.

Leona Maguire’s remarkable final round culminated in a breathtaking eagle on the 18th hole, propelling her one shot ahead of her competitors.

The day was a rollercoaster, with the lead changing hands multiple times, keeping spectators on the edge of their seats.

Maguire’s precision under pressure was on full display when she executed a tricky hybrid shot from just in front of a fairway bunker, landing the ball within five feet of the hole.

This set up the pivotal eagle that allowed her to surpass Spain’s Maria Hernandez, who had set the clubhouse lead at seven-under-par.

Reflecting on her triumph, Maguire emphasized the importance of patience. “The motto for today was to stay patient and just not to give up, knowing that there were some chances coming down the stretch.

I was trying to be patient, but it really did test my patience right until the very end. But that’s a prime example of not giving up and really trying to finish as strong as possible.”

Maria Hernandez, who had been tantalizingly close to her first LET win in 14 years following two blemish-free rounds, finished just one shot behind Maguire.

Alison Lee, despite a stunning round with eight birdies, fell short by two shots, alongside local favourite Georgia Hall.

The team competition was equally dramatic, with Team Nadaud and Team Hall locked in a fierce three-hole playoff. Both team captains began the play-off with eagles, setting the stage for an epic showdown.

French captain Nadaud’s skill and composure ultimately shone through as she sank two birdies on the final holes, outlasting Hall who had delivered a clutch shot to put herself within putting range.

“To be honest, I don’t even know how I handled this,” said Nadaud, reflecting on her victory.

“I was so nervous on the first tee, I was afraid I wouldn’t hit the ball! I was trembling so much on the first tee shot on 18, but my caddy was really helpful, keeping me breathing and focused on the process.”

Earlier in the day, France’s Agathe Sauzon played an extraordinary round of golf, carding four birdies on the front nine and five on the back for a total of 66, securing her a sixth-place finish.

Meanwhile, individual champion Maguire’s compatriot Lauren Walsh had a standout performance with seven birdies and a sensational eagle on the 18th, finishing T3 by day’s end.

The Aramco Team Series presented by PIF – London has wrapped up, but the excitement is far from over.

Fans can look forward to two more high-stakes events on the LET calendar: the Aramco Team Series presented by PIF – Riyadh and one additional event yet to be announced. For more information, visit
