DURHAM, N.C. – The No. 1 ranked Duke women’s golf team will conclude the 2012 fall campaign this weekend as the Blue Devils will travel to Wilmington, N.C., for the Landfall Tradition, which will take place from Oct. 26-28 at the Country Club of Landfall. 

The tournament will feature 18 holes each day at the 6,138-yard, par 72 Jack Nicklaus Course.  Seeing action this weekend will be Arizona, Duke, Florida State, Iowa State, Michigan State, Mississippi, UNC Greensboro, N.C.

In three tournaments this fall, Duke has turned in a second place, tied for sixth and is coming off a fourth place finish at the Tar Heel Invitational.  Duncan, who is out of Fort Lauderdale, Fla., owns a team-best 71.33 stroke average and has finished in the top 10 in all three events.
