In partnership since 2018
Irish professional golfer, Leona Maguire, has been a KPMG ambassador since she turned professional in 2018. We are committed to supporting her as she progresses to the next stages of her career and continues to inspire the future.
Looking back on the 2022 season
2022 was a rollercoaster for Leona. She made history earlier in the year by becoming the first Irish golfer to win a title on the LPGA tour in the Drive On Championship in Florida. Leona won by 3 shots to beat Lexi Thompson, securing her maiden title much to the delight of her supporters at home and abroad.
Mid-season, Leona secured another career first with her best-ever finish at a major championship — a tie for fourth at the AIG Women’s Open in Muirfield.
In September, Leona returned to Ireland to compete at the KPMG Women’s Irish Open at Dromoland Castle, finishing with an incredible joint 4th whilst Klara Spilkova from Czech Republic was crowned the 2022 KPMG Women’s Irish Open Champion after a three-way playoff with Nicole Broch Estrup and Ursula Wikstrom. As Ireland’s leading female golfer, Leona added an extra level of interest and excitement to the tournament that returned after a 10-year hiatus.
Leona finished the season on a high, placing second on the 2022 CME Group Tour Championship in Florida and 4th in the Spanish Open to close out the final LET tournament.
We are all very proud of Leona’s achievements and we're excited to see what 2023 has in store.

After a decorated collegiate career at Duke University which included three NCAA Player of the Year awards and ACC Championships in 2017 and 2018, the Cavan native turned pro and became a KPMG brand ambassador in May of 2018. Her first professional appearance was at the 2018 Shoprite LPGA Classic in Galloway, New Jersey, USA.
Leona competed primarily on the Symetra Tour in 2018 and 2019, with occasional participation on the LPGA and Ladies European Tours as well. 2019 saw Leona take home her first two professional wins: the Windsor Golf Classic in California and the Symetra Classic in North Carolina. Finishing seventh on the Tour’s Volvik Race for the Card list, she successfully graduated from the Symetra Tour and secured her LPGA Tour Card in October 2019.
In February 2020, Maguire recorded her first LPGA top five finish. Then, in 2021, she recorded highest ever finish by an Irish female on the LPGA Tour by finishing second at the Lotte Championship. Since then, she has clocked up a top-10 finish at the LPGA Mediheal Championship, a second place position at the Meijer LPGA Classic and her highest ever placing in a professional golf major with 15th place in the KPMG Women's PGA Championship in Georgia. She was also selected as part of Team Ireland at the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo last summer, which was her second Olympic appearance.
In addition to her inspiring Solheim Cup performance, Leona recently equalled the lowest Major score for men or women with stunning 61 at the Evian Championship. She holds the records for most weeks at No. 1 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings (135), and best career scoring average for Division I Women’s Golf (70.93).
Leona finished in the top 10 at the US Women's Open in Pine Needles in early June - a huge achievement.
