Isabelle Lendl won the Dixie Women’s Amateur on Jan. 2, thanks in large part to a final-round 66 at Heron Bay Golf Club in Coral Springs, Fla. The University of Florida senior already has two victories for the 2012-13 college season, and is No. 4 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings.

Lendl started the final round of the Dixie five shots behind leader Carly Rae Goldstein, a 17-year-old who has signed with LSU. Lendl's final round left her with a 10-under 278 total and four shots clear of the next closest competitors, Goldstein and Cindy Feng, who tied for second at 6-under 282.

Christina Ocampo was solo fourth at 3-under 285. USC-bound Annie Park, Brooke Baker and Matilda Castren tied for fifth at 286.

Defending champion Paula Reto, a Purdue senior, was part of a three-way tie for eighth.
