Duncan wins LSU Golf Classic in playoff

Reigning ACC Player of the Year Lindy Duncan recorded her first victory of the year, winning the LSU Golf Classic in a playoff over Anna-Karin Ljungstrom of Louisville on the third extra hole.

A third-round 71 put Duncan in a tie for the lead after 54 holes, but her three pars over the first three playoff holes were enough to hold off Ljungstrom, who bogeyed the last to hand Duncan the title.

The sophomore staged a final day comeback after being tied for sixth after the second round, starting the day three shots off the lead. Duncan came out of the gates Sunday with seven consecutive pars, and her birdies on No. 14 and 15 put her in prime position late.

As a team, Duke finished in a tie for third, shooting a collective 36-over on the par-72 University Club course.
