3. Duke

2011-12 Golfweek rank: 8

Go-to girl: Lindy Duncan

Season outlook: The juniors on this roster need to provide backup for Duke to be consistently successful. Senior Duncan is a top-10 machine, but Laetitia Beck and Alejandra Cangrejo have the ability to go low, too.

Touted freshman Celine Boutier adds even more punch, and now Duke just needs one more player to consistently add a low fourth score. It could come from sophomore Irene Jung, or seniors Courtney Ellenbogen and Stacey Kim. If Ellenbogen can find the form that made her an AJGA first-team All-American as a junior golfer, she could be a huge help for the Blue Devils.
