Northwestern golfers have reason to smile

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

After the misery of watching Northwestern lose to Washington in an NIT second-round game Friday night in Seattle, the Wildcats at least had something to smile about -- on the golf course.

Three former Wildcat golfers had stellar weekends.

Luke Donald got his No. 1 world ranking back with a playoff victory in the PGA Tour's Transitions Championship. The win puts Donald ahead of Roy McIroy, who had nudged Donald out of the top spot a few months ago.

David Lipsky, a 2011 NU grad, won the Asian Tour. Lipsky is a rookie on the Asian Tour.

And Dillon Dougherty leads the money list after two events on the Golfweek National Pro Tour. Doughtery won the L.A. Open over the weekend.
