Amateur Leona Maguire makes Evian cut and 

a little bit of golfing history

World Amateur No 1 Leona Maguire is used to making her mark and she was at it again in France on Friday when she was believed to be the first woman representing the Republic of Ireland — amateur or professional — to make the cut in a women's major.
The Slieve Russell and Duke University star made three birdies in her last nine holes for a second round 73 at the Evian Championship to make the five over cut by two strokes.
Out in three over par, she came home in one under for a two over par 73 to go into the weekend 12 shots off the lead held by Mi Hyang Lee of South Korea.
