Irish amateur Leona Maguire lost ground on the final round of the Women's British Open at Woburn as a closing 75 left her in a share of 25th place.

Maguire, who shared 10th spot after Saturday's third round, still had the consolation of winning the Smyth Salver for finishing top amateur.

The 21-year-old Cavan woman's next event will be when she represents Ireland at the Olympics in Rio.

Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn earned a three-shot victory at Woburn.

Jutanugarn regrouped from a back nine wobble as she double bogeyed the 13th to finish three ahead of her playing partner, South Korean Lee Mirim.
