Leona Maguire inside the top 20 at halfway point of Gainbridge Championship

Ireland's Leona Maguire is three-under-par at the midway point of the Gainbridge Championship on the LPGA Tour.

The Cavan native had four birdies and four bogeys in her second round 72 in Florida this evening and sits seven shots behind clubhouse leader Lydia Ko.

"Yeah, it's a fun place to start the year," Maguire said of a strong first two rounds at her new local course at Lake Nona. "I think it was a little bit of a surprise for everybody, but a welcome one.

"I mean, course is in fantastic shape and I think everybody is really enjoying to this week. Yeah, to get off to a nice start of the year is always good and first weekend of the year pretty stress-free, which is nice.

"It's a lot warmer here in January than it is back in Ireland. So I went home for Christmas and then came back a few weeks ago. The facilities are great here, so it's definitely an advantage to practice your game here.

"I was able to play some games with some of the other girl here as well to get ready, especially when we knew the event was going to be here. There are a few of the tees that are maybe a little different than what we would normally play, kind of had to get used to that.

"Greens are probably running a little bit firmer and faster than they usually would be. So it's a little different, but at the same time it's nice to have that of extra few practice rounds in than everybody else."

Stephanie Meadow looks set to miss the weekend after finishing up at four-over-par.
