AJGA Alums Dominate NCAA Championship

Anna Grzebien’s tournament total of 2-over-par 286 helped earn Duke University its third national championship. The top five finishers at the NCAA Division I Women’s Championship are all AJGA alumni. The Blue Devils team total of 34-over-par 1170 was five shots better than 2004 champion UCLA.

Grzebien distanced herself from the field with her third-round 6-under-par 65. Leah Wigger of Virginia finished the event at 3-over-par 287, one shot back. Rounding out the top five were Amie Cochran of UCLA, Brittany Lang of Duke and Nicole Hage of Auburn.

UCLA finished with a flurry of birdies at the Meadows Course in Sunriver, Ore., but Duke was able to hold on. Auburn secured third, while Pepperdine and California finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

UNLV Wins West Regional

Nevada-Las Vegas earned an easy victory at the NCAA West Regional on Saturday at Stanford Golf Course, allowing them to advance to the NCAA Men’s Division I Championship June 1-4. Stanford freshman Rob Grube earned medalist honors with a 65 in the final round.

Grube finished three shots ahead of UCLA’s Kevin Chappell and Nathan Lashley of Arizona. UNLV’s Ryan Moore and Spencer Levin of New Mexico both finished at even-par 216, tied for sixth.

Creamer Earns First LPGA Victory

One week before her high school graduation, Paula Creamer won her first LPGA victory at the Sybase Classic presented by Lincoln Mercury. Creamer drained a 17-foot birdie putt on No. 18 at the Wykagyl Country Club in New Rochelle, N.Y., to wrap up the victory.

Creamer’s rounds of 69-68-71-70—278 were enough to outlast Jeong Jang and Gloria Park who finished tied for second. Creamer, the 2003 Rolex Junior Player of the Year, became the second-youngest first-time winner on the LPGA Tour.
