Bauer Turns Pro; Hardin on Top

Beth Bauer, who many would argue is the best women's golfer to play at Duke, has decided to turn pro and skip her final two years. Bauer was a first team All-American both of her years at Duke and a member of the NCAA championship team.

Query: Why was there such a fuss when Duke had three men's basketball players turn pro, but discussion is relatively muted when a golfer or tennis player turns pro (or even football's Dave Brown)? That might make a good discussion piece on the DBR Bulletin Board.

Finally, Leigh Ann Hardin, the incoming Duke freshmen we mentioned yesterday, sank a birdie putt on the 18th hole to capture medalist honors and first place after two days at the U.S. Women's Amateur tournament.
