Freshman Leona Maguire shot a 6-under 65 Saturday during the second round of the Darius Rucker Intercollegiate, steering the Duke Blue Devils to the lead as they play to defend their title.
Behind Maguire’s tournament-low score, Duke shot the only round under par at Long Cove Club on Hilton Head Island, S.C., a 1-under 283. The Blue Devils moved to 8 over for the tournament, one stroke better than LSU with 18 holes to play.
The Tigers were led by Madelene Sagstrom, who shot the second-lowest score of the event with a 3-under 68. She’s one shot behind Maguire in the individual race at 3 under for the event after closing with birdies on 17 and 18.
USC led after one round, but fell back after shooting 12 over Saturday. The Trojans are five shots back at 13 over. Mississippi State is in fourth at 23 over, and host South Carolina is at 24 over.
