Duke’s Other Dynasty

The Duke Blue Devils are known for their basketball program and Cameron Indoor Stadium and having one of the worst college football programs in the country. However, many people don’t know, Duke’s women’s golf program has been on one of the most impressive runs in college golf history. Having won 7 consecutive tournaments, the No. 1 ranked women’s golf program suffered their first defeat of the season finishing 3rd in the Liz Murphey Collegiate Classic hosted by the University of Georgia. What is impressive is that they were short two of their best golfers who were playing at the Kraft Nabisco Championships. Granted Freshman Brittany Lang won the tournament at 9-under par, the Blue Devils only had 4 players where the rest of the field had 5. (College golf involves a scoring system where 5 play and you count the low 4 scores, so Duke had to count each player’s score regardless of what they shot). I feel it would be nearly impossible for the Duke Basketball Teams to play without 2 of their starting 5, while playing a man/woman down and still finish 3rd. The Duke Women’s Golf program is amazing and this is where the teenage girls go if they do not decide to go pro!
