Watch: All Of Leona Maguire's Best Shots During Solheim Cup Singles Win

Day 3 of the Solheim Cup brought 12 singles matches to the fore.

It was a day where Europe needed just a tie overall in the individual matchups to win the prestigious event.

However, a victory for Team Europe wouldn't just steal the headlines. It was the standout performance over the three days from Leona Maguire.

As previewed by Golf.com, "If any match can equal the high expectations of the Nordqvist/Thompson opener, itโ€™s this meeting of Solheim Cup rookies."

Kupcho was 3-0 going into the singles matchups. It was a pairing of two in-form rookie golfers. They predicted a halve. Maguire would have the last say.

Leona had a dream start to the singles matchup, as she landed herself within putting territory for an eagle on Hole 2.

She increases her lead after four holes. 2 up now. "Europe's Leona Maguire ... Ireland's Leona Maguire."
