GREENSBORO, N.C. – For a record seventh time in her career, Duke University senior Leona Maguire has been selected the ACC Golfer of the Month. Maguire earned the honor for September, after opening the season with a school-record 13-under-par, 200, to win the Jim West Challenge.

A product of Cavan, Ireland, Maguire carded rounds of 67, 63 and 70 over the three days in The Woodlands, Texas, on her way to posting her eighth victory of her career. The win moved her into third place on Duke’s all-time wins’ list.

Maguire compiled a school-record 12-under, 130 score in the first two rounds, including a 63 in round two that missed being a Duke school record by one stroke. That bogey-free, eight-under round tied for second-lowest 18-hole score in school history. For the tournament, Maguire led the Blue Devils to a school-record 33-under-par score and a 22-stroke team win. The win was the 129th of head coach Dan Brooks’ career.

Duke will next compete in the Ruth’s Chris Tar Heel Invitational Oct. 13-15 in Chapel Hill, N.C.
