Dukes Blaum Amateur of Month


Duke junior Ryan Blaum has been named National Amateur of the Month for April by the Southern Golf Association. Blaum earned the honor principally on the strength of his individual title in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship against an elite field.
Blaum posted a sterling total of 10-under-par 206, a startling eight shots clear of the field. Blaums effort led Duke to a four-shot team victory over nationally-ranked runnerup Georgia Tech.
University of Arkansas-Little Rocks Patrick Sullivan was named honorable mention for April after winning the Sunbelt Conference Championship, his second collegiate medalist finish in a month. Sullivan also won the Maumelle Classic, an amateur event previously won by such notables at Tim Jackson, Danny Green, and John Daly.
