Vanderbilt carded a final-round 7-over 295 Saturday to win the 3M Lady Jaguar Intercollegiate and clinch the team's second victory of the season.

The Commodores, who won earlier this spring at the Central District Invitational, finished at 32-over 896 at Forest Hills Golf Club in Augusta, Ga. Mercer was second, 10 shots back. The final two rounds were player Saturday due to Sunday's forecast calling for inclement weather.

Simin Feng again was solid for Vanderbilt, finishing third individually at 6-over 222. Mercer's Lacey Fears was medalist at 1 over.

Sophomore Lindsey Weaver leads a young Arizona squad.
Sophomore Lindsey Weaver leads a young Arizona squad.

Arizona epitomizes youth this season in every way. The leading Wildcat scorers are a sophomore transfer and two freshmen. A pair of newlyweds – assistant coach Derek Radley and wife Sara Brown – have taken the reins for the past few weeks as head coach Laura Ianello and her husband welcomed daughter Natalie into the world Feb. 26.

With youth comes the opportunity for a breakout performance, and Arizona is still waiting for that big win that will define – and perhaps, rejuvenate – its season. In search of something a little different, Radley and Ianello decided to build a late-season trip east into ...

Dan Brooks reflects on 30 years at Duke

Dan Brooks, shown in a 2012 photo, is in his 30th season with Duke.
Dan Brooks, shown in a 2012 photo, is in his 30th season with Duke.

The name Dan Brooks and Duke women's golf have become nearly synonymous over the past 30 years.

During that stretch, all of which he has spent at Duke, Brooks has amassed 116 team victories, 17 ACC championships and five NCAA national championships.

He deflects the importance of his 30th anniversary at the Durham, N.C., school, but one thing he cannot deny is the success of the Blue Devils this season. This spring, Duke, No. 3 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College Rankings, has notched a runner-up finish at the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge and a victory at the Darius ...

Back home in Beijing, it was rare for Yu Liu to get to practice on real grass. She hit off mats on crowded driving ranges near her downtown home and struggled to find quality greens for short-game practice. What a difference a year – and a move – makes.

Liu, a Duke freshman, has been one of the immediate success stories of this season. She’s the No. 2 player in Golfweek’s rankings, and the ...

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. – Wiping away tears, Robert Morris head coach Jerry Stone found it hard to talk about the school's women’s golf team, which will disband at the end of the spring season.

It was hard for me to hear it. It’s almost like it wasn’t true until hearing it in person.
