Home player Stephanie Meadow is on track to secure a dream win at Galgorm Castle

Home player Stephanie Meadow takes a lead of four shots in the final round of Sunday at the women's event at the World Invitational in Northern Ireland.

Meadow hit a six-under 67 in her first professional event in Northern Ireland to go to 10-under – four free from England Eleanor Givens.

England & Charley Hull and another Irish woman Leona Maguire are in a group five behind the 27-year-old.

England & # 39; s Todd Clements and France & # 39; s Damien Perrier lead the men's field.

For the first time in European golf, the event in Northern Ireland has separate men's and women's tournaments with the same prize money.

Meadow is on his way to winning the £ 33,000 ladies first prize with £ 22,000 and £ 14,500 to second and third place in both tournaments.

The Jordanstown woman finished it at her professional debut at the Women's US Open in 2014, but her only professional win came in the second-row Symetra Tour in the US last year.

Earlier this week, the Northern Irishwoman promised the weight of expecting to be the big local hope, and she performed that task exceptionally on Saturday by recovering from a bogey at the second to map seven birds .

"I'm not going to do anything else tomorrow, just go outside and try to make as many birdies as possible," said the US-based player.

European Solheim Cup star Hull moved in two from Meadow for the series of four Northern birds of the Northern Irishwoman in five holes from the 10th.

The Hull Tour included a remarkable nine birdies but also a double bogey and two further shots shot.

County Cavan, wife Maguire, kept her hope alive by hitting a 71 to join Hull and the German duo Olivia Cowan and Laura Fuenfstueck on five.

Kildare amateur Lauren Walsh remains in the top 10 on two but Northern Ireland amateur Annabel Wilson missed the third round cut when an 84 dropped her to 11. About

England & # 39; s Todd Clements ended with two closing birdies to share the lead in the men's event

For the second consecutive day, the game was postponed after heavy rain, but the scoring was still impressive because Sweden's early starter, Jacob Glennemo, a six-under-par 64 fired to storm the men's field to five under.

Towards the end of the day, Glennemo was only four behind Clements and Perrier leaders after completing Friday's action at the cutting edge.

Overnight leader Clements, ranked in 1055th place in the world and never won in Europe's second row men's circuit, fought well to end with two closing birdies when 68 left the 22-year-old in nine with the Frenchman Perrier [66].

The duo is ahead of England & # 39; s Jack Senior and Italy & # 39; s Francesco Laporta with another Englishman Jordan Wrisdale three of the pace and last year's Northern Ireland Open winner, Scotland Calum Hill, in a group four behind.

A home man looks highly unlikely in the men's event with Ardglass player Cormac Sharvin, the only Irishman who cut the third round as a closing eagle saw survival in exactly the same position as a bottom.

Sixteen-year-old Galgorm Castle amateur Josh Hill, the lead Irishman last night, left fourth to a 77 who included two triple bogeys on his front nine.
