DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke women’s golf team was listed as No. 3 in the most recent Golf World/WGCA Division I College Women’s Coaches’ Poll, as announced by the organization Wednesday. The Blue Devils have recorded two third-place finishes to open the spring at the Northrop Grumman Challenge and the Allstate Sugar Bowl Championship, respectively.

Southern California owns the top-spot in the poll, while Alabama, Duke, Oklahoma and North Carolina round out the top-five. The Atlantic Coast Conference is represented by four teams, with Duke and North Carolina both listed in the top-five, and N.C. State and Virginia tabbed at No. 17 and No. 20, respectively.

The Blue Devils are led by senior Lindy Duncan who opened the spring with two top-20 finishes at the Northrop Grumman and Allstate Sugar Bowl and currently owns a 72.3 stroke average on the year. Duncan, the 2012 PING NGCA National Player of the Year, carded rounds of 70 and 75 at the Allstate Sugar Bowl to finish in a tie for 11th place at one-over par, 145.

Junior Laetitia Beck also opened the spring on the right foot, earning her first top-10 of the season after firing two even-par 72’s, good enough for an eighth place finish at the Allstate Sugar Bowl. Beck, a native of Caesarea, Israel, tied a team-high with six par or better rounds this year.

The Blue Devils will be back on the links March 29-31 at the Bryan National Collegiate on the Champions Course at Bryan Park in Greensboro, N.C.
