Ireland's Leona Maguire and Stephanie Meadow have qualified for the 2019 US Women's Open.

Meadow carded rounds of 67 and 71 to win the 36-hole qualifier at Pinnacle Creek Country Club in Arizona by three shots.

And Meadow will also tee it up at the Country Club of Charleston from May 30 after rounds of 66 and 68 saw her finish second to Yuka Saso of the Philippines at Druid Hills Golf Club in Atlanta.

Further places in the field for the year's second Major championship will be decided by Tuesday's 36-hole qualifier at Buckinghamshire Golf Club.
