DURHAM, N.C. - For the second time this season, Duke’s Lindy Duncan has been selected the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC) Women’s Golfer of the Month for April.  The junior is coming off registering the third victory of the season and fifth of her career over the weekend at the Bryan National Collegiate.

Duncan, who is a native of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., carded rounds of 71, 71 and 70 for a total of four-under-par, 212, over the 54 holes of action.  She posted one eagle and 10 birdies in the tournament.  Duncan helped lead Duke to a tie for first place finish through three days, but the Blue Devils lost to Tennessee in a playoff for the team title. 

With her five career wins, Duncan now ranks tied for sixth all-time in Duke history along with Blue Devil all-time greats Virada Nirapathpongporn and Candy Hannemann.  Duncan, a two-time NGCA All-America, is currently the top-ranked golfer in the nation by the Golfweek/Sagarin Performance Index. 

Duncan boasts a 70.81 stroke average on the season, which if the season were to conclude today would be a new school record.  She owns seven top 10 finishes in seven tournaments, including four top five placements.  Duncan has registered a 68.71 stroke average in the final round this season. 

The ACC Women’s Golfer of the Month for April included tournaments played March 30, 2012 through April 9, 2012.

Duke will next compete in the ACC Championship from April 13-15 at the Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, N.C.
