Blasberg Wins in Second Start


Futures TourCANTERBURY, N.H. -- Erica Blasberg won the Laconia Savings Bank Futures Golf Classic on Sunday in only her second tournament as a professional.
'I played great college golf, but I felt it was time to really test myself,' said Blasberg, who left Arizona State University. 'My dad and I debated the pros and cons of whether I should turn pro or not or if I was ready. It was a gamble, I guess.'
Blasberg posted a 2-under 70 on Sunday to finish the tournament at 15-under-par 201. Her 10-under par 62 on Saturday was a new Futures Tour record for a par-72 track like Canterbury Woods Country Club.
Blasberg, who played for the United States in this year's Curtis Cup, improved on her tie for 19th last week at the Stratton Mountain Futures Classic. For her win this week, Blasberg pocketed $9,100.
Kris Tamulis carded a 3-under 69 on Sunday and took second place at 13-under-par 203. Emily Bastel fired a 6-under 66 to come in third at minus-10.
Sung Ah Yim, who has not finished outside the top-20 this season, shot a 3-under 69 and took fourth place at 9-under-par 207.
Sarah Lynn Johnston shot a 2-under 70 and tied for fifth place with Malinda Johnson, who struggled to a 1-over 73. The duo was knotted at 8-under-par 208.
