LPGA

Duke well represented at Women's U.S. Open

Posted June 20, 2014

— The Duke women’s golf program has become quite the feeder to the LPGA, placing three former Blue Devils into the U.S. Open field.

For Brittany Lang, playing a Pinehurst No. 2 means a lot more than just a chance to play for her first U.S. Open championship. It’s also a chance for her to come back to where she played her college golf.

“It’s great to be back,” said Lang. “I haven’t been back in forever. It’s good to be back close to Duke and a lot of friends.”

Lang, along with Mina Harigae and current Duke golfer Celine Boutier, the Devils are getting their due in Pinehurst.

“It feels good, it’s great to be connected to a lot of people,” said Duke head coach Dan Brooks. “There’s a lot of players out here that I was recruiting at one point and I’ve seen them play their four years.”

Brooks has taken the Blue Devils to six national championships, including the 2014 title.

“Dan Brooks is doing a great job and those girls are awesome, so it’s good for them,” said Lang. “I sent him a text to congratulate him, because he’s something else because he has so many national titles.”

Boutier, the winner of the Honda award given to the best player in women’s college golf, now can add her first U.S. Open to her resume.

“My whole season has been great, especially my spring,” said Boutier. “I’ve been really working hard this year and also this past year.”

Duke assistant coach Jeanne Cho had some strong words of encouragement for Boutier.

“I think she needs to go there, feel like she belongs there, and go there to win it,” said Cho.

With a national championship, the player-of-the-year, and three entries in the U.S. Open, 2014 hasn’t been a bad year for Duke golf.
