Name: Leona Maguire

Event: Golf

Age: 26

Long touted as one of the breakout stars of Irish sport, Maguire has registered four top-10 finishes in 2021, rising to a career high of 60th in the world rankings in the process.

The Cavan woman notched her highest finish yet on the LPGA Tour last month, with a second place finish at the Meijer LPGA Classic in California behind American Nelly Korda.

Maguire had an hugely illustrious amateur career before turning professional in 2018. She has subsequently won two events on the Symetra Tour, the LPGA's developmental tour, but is still waiting for her first LPGA Tour win, which, on the basis of recent form, can't be too far away.

While still amateur, she represented Ireland at the Rio Olympics in 2016, finishing in a tie for 21st spot.
