PALOS VERDES, Calif. – For the second straight day, the Duke women’s golf team carded a three-over-par, 287, in the Northrop Grumman Regional Challenge and enters the final round in third place at the 6,017-yard, par 71 Palos Verdes Golf Club in Palos Verdes, Calif.

Florida turned in a 12-under-par, 275, Monday to claim the overall lead with a three-under-par, 565.  Southern California (567), Duke (574), Arizona State (575), UNLV (578), UCLA (579), Alabama (580), Northwestern (585), San Diego State (585), California (588) and Arizona (588) rounded out the top 11 teams.  

At one point on the afternoon, the Blue Devils were only two shots behind Florida, but Duke dropped five shots over the final three holes as winds started picking up and temperatures fell.  Duke made the turn at even par as Leona Maguire and Virginia Elena Carta held a two-under-par ledger each.  

Maguire, who was tied for the individual lead after day one with a three-under-par ledger, went on to sign for an even-par, 71, in the second round and is tied third with a three-under-par, 139.  A product of Cavan, Ireland, Maguire trails Kelly Grassel of Florida (137) and Robynn Ree of Southern California (138) with 18 holes remaining.  

Looking for her first win of the 2016-17 campaign, Maguire opened with birdies on No. 5, No. 7 and No. 9 on her way to making the turn with a two-under-par, 33.  After five straight pars to open the back nine, Maguire finished with bogeys on No. 15 and No. 17 along with pars to finish with a 71.  

Carding her second consecutive even-par, 71, freshman Ana Belac is tied eighth overall with a 142.  Belac, who hails from Portoroz, Slovenia, made par on her opening two holes, but suffered a double-bogey on the 374-yard, par four third hole and a bogey on No. 4 to drop to three-over-par.  She turned it around and played her final 14 holes at three-under-par as she drained birdies on No. 9, No. 12, No. 14 and No. 15.  Her birdie on the 350-yard, par four ninth got things started as she sank a 60-foot putt over three levels.  Belac hit 13 greens, eight fairways and rolled 30 putts on the day.  

A product of Udine, Italy, Carta held one of the lowest rounds of the day at four-under-par, but a three-putt double-bogey on No. 17 and a par on the 18th closed her day with a two-under, 69.  She still registered her second round in the 60s this season and moved up to tied for eighth overall with a 142.  Carta hit 15 greens, nine fairways and logged 33 putts on the afternoon.  

After opening the first nine holes with birdies on No. 1, No. 6 and No. 8, Carta made the turn at two-under-par, she added birdies on No. 10 and No. 14 to get to four-under.  She suffered the double-bogey on the way in to finish with the 69.

Junior Gurbani Singh opened her day with a three-over-par score through five holes, but settled down and to collect three birdies over a five-hole span to get back to one-over-par.  Singh, who is from New Delhi, India, suffered four bogeys over her final five holes to finish with a 76.  She is tied 65th overall with a 151.  

After shooting an 82 in round one, junior Lisa Maguire collected two birdies and had an 80 Monday.  She is 86th overall with a 162.  

The final round will feature a shotgun start beginning at 11:30 a.m.  Fans can follow the action via live scoring at www.GolfStat.com.
