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.
