Leona Maguire is ready to give her all to help her team achieve a positive result at the Solheim Cup. Maguire will be a big source of support for her team, and it seems that she does not want to put pressure on herself. Although they previously had a great performance at Solheim, Maguire admits that now both teams look different and that the US team has great golfers.

"Obviously last time went about as well as it possibly could have, but it's a brand-new event this time," Maguire said, as quoted by skysports.com! "It's a brand-new venue and a brand-new team, both on the Europe and the US side.

I think the US have a fantastic team this time. I think they have a young team that's ready to go. Ultimately, I'll try and win as many points as I can, but we'll just prepare as well as we can and go in with very little expectations like the last time, the same way as I approach any other event."

Leona stressed that previous performances and successes are not a guarantee that team will succeed this time as well.

Maguire believes that this will be a completely new experience for her, but she is clearly not afraid! "Just because it's worked well in the past doesn't really make much difference for this time. It almost feels a little bit like a rookie again playing on home soil.

This is all still a new experience for me, so will just try and enjoy the week as much as I can and feed off the energy of the crowd." The most important thing is that everyone on the team is in a good mood. Optimism is visible, and when you have optimism, then nothing is difficult for you.

"I think we have a fantastic team this week. I think there's lots of options of who can play with who. It's obviously a new team and you'll see some familiar pairings and some new pairings.
