Sophomore Lindy Duncan shot a 72 on Friday

SOUTH BEND, Ind. -  The first afternoon round of the 2010-11 season didn't go the way the fifth-ranked Duke women's golf team planned on Friday as the Blue Devils shot a 26-over-par, 314, to drop to tied for 13th overall at the NCAA Central Regional, which is being played at the 6,208-yard, par 72 Warren Golf Course in South Bend, Ind.

The top eight teams will advance to the 2011 NCAA Championship so the Blue Devils have their work cut out for them, but Duke is only six shots out of eight place.  The Blue Devils have advanced to the NCAA Championships for the last 13 years, including national titles in 1999, 2002, 2005, 2006 and 2007.

Maintaining its lead from round one was UCLA with a 36-hole total of 592 and holds a six shot lead over Minnesota.  LSU (598), Notre Dame (603), Ohio State (607, Northwestern (608), Stanford (608), Arkansas (610), Chattanooga (612), Texas (613), Kent State (615), Tulane (615), Duke (616), Wake Forest (616) and Wisconsin (619) round out the top 15.  The Blue Devils kicked off their round at 1:26 p.m., on Friday off hole No. 10.

"I saw a lot of bogies, it wasn't a good day," said Duke Head Coach Dan Brooks.  "Yesterday, we didn't have anything bigger than a bogey and today we had plenty of bogeys, doubles and had a lot of trouble.  So we are in a hole -- we have to get out and believe in ourselves.  That is going to be the big deal is that they believe we are a team that belongs at nationals and all we have to do is stay patient and play, then we will get there.  If they get down then we are in trouble."

Duke's round of 314 on Friday marked the largest regional round since 1997, which was also the last time the Blue Devils didn't advance to nationals.  After committing zero double-bogeys and triple-bogeys in Thursday's opening round, Duke had eight double-bogeys and one triple-bogey on Friday. 

Turning in a Duke-best round of even-par, 72, was sophomore Lindy Duncan.  A product of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Duncan owns a two-day total of 147, which is tied for fifth overall.  She is only three shots out of the individual leader Emily Tubert of Arkansas (144). 

Duncan had a slow start with back-to-back bogeys to open her round and then went to three-over-par with a bogey on the 14th, but settled down to play the final 13 holes at three-under-par.  She posted her first of three birdies on the day on No. 17 as she drained a 12-footer.  Duncan rolled in a 30-footer on the fourth hole for birdie as well, which marked her third birdie on a par three in two rounds.  She moved her score back to even par on the 370-yard, par four seventh hole as she chipped in from 15 yards off the green with her 54-degree sand wedge.

"It was kind of a rough start again," said Duncan.  "I have been kinda having a hard time in the first couple of holes, but today I really got settled and got little bit of a roll going after I made a birdie on No. 17.  I tried to keep hitting fairways and greens because it was another pretty hard day out there."

She closed with a sand save on No. 8 and a par on No. 9 to finish with a 72.  Duncan hit 12 greens, 11 fairways and had 30 putts on the day. 

"[Lindy was] fantastic," said Brooks.  "Even par today was really good.  Anyone shooting around even is playing great golf."

The other Blue Devils all shot in the 80s, which marked a Duke first in regional play since 1997.  Laetitia Beck had an 80, Kim Donovan and Alejandra Cangrejo each turned in an 81 and Stacey Kim shot an 83. 

Beck, who is from Caesarea, Israel, was coming off an even par 72 on day one but struggled with big numbers on Friday with two double-bogeys and one triple-bogey on her way to finishing with an 80.  She is tied for 29th heading into Saturday with a total of 152.  For the day, Beck hit nine fairways, but only six greens, while totaling 31 putts.

Donovan opened her round with bogeys on No. 10 and No. 15, but came back to notch her lone birdie of the day on the 321-yard, par four 16th.  A native of Hopkinton, Mass., Donovan hit her lob wedge from 72 yards out to within two inches and tapped in for birdie.  She made the turn at two-over-par following a bogey on the 18th hole, but was seven-over-par on the final nine holes to finish with an 81.  She is tied for 80th, individually, with a 159.  Donovan hit 11 fairways, 11 greens but had a team-high 36 putts.

After opening with a par on the first hole, Cangrejo went on to make four bogeys and a double-bogey over the next five holes to move to six-over-par.  She came back with her lone birdie of the day on the 16th hole as well as she hit her 60-degree wedge from 65 yards to within inches.  On her final nine, she turned in six pars, but had two bogeys and a double-bogey on No. 1 on her way to finishing with an 81.  Cangrejo, who is from Bogota, Columbia, hit eight fairways, nine greens and had 35 putts in her round. 

A product of Columbus, Ga., Kim had a tough time from the beginning as she hit her third shot into water on the 490-yard, par five 10th hole.  She went on to make double-bogey and then was nine-over-par through six holes.  Kim closed the first nine holes with a beautiful shot on No. 18 that came up under a foot from the cup and ended with a tap-in birdie.  She had six pars and three bogeys on the back to finish with an 83, which matched a season high 18-hole total.  Kim hit six greens, nine fairways and had 31 putts.

Both Kim and Cangrejo enter the final round tied for 87th with a 160.  Duke will tee off on Saturday beginning at 12:30 p.m., along with Wake Forest and Wisconsin. 

"It is really close," said Duncan.  "I just think we have to keep remembering it is only a couple of shots here and there.  On this course anything can happen on one or two holes.  So we really need to stay patient more than anything and just try to hit the ball on the green, hit some fairways and if the putts go in that is great."


Notes:

  • Laetitia Beck's round of 80 on Friday marked only the second time this season she has shot 80 or higher.
  • Kim Donovan's 81 matched her highest round in postseason action as she also shot an 81 at the NCAA Championship in 2009-10.
  • Lindy Duncan ranks tied for second in par three scoring (2.88) and her six birdies in two rounds rank tied for third.
  • Laetitia Beck's 24 pars in 36 holes ranks tied for fifth.
  • Alejandra Cangrejo's 35 putts on the day was the her second-highest total of the season.
  • Kim Donovan's 36 putts matched her season high as well.
