erica-blasberg.JPGLPGA golfer Erica Blasberg died at her home in a Las Vegas suburb Sunday, according to police and her agent.

The 25-year-old's death is being investigated by authorities and it's not immediately clear if any foul play is involved.

Blasberg played her collegiate golf at Arizona, where she won six times in two years and played on the Curtis Cup team in 2004 -- the same year she turned pro. She'd played only one tour event this year, that coming two weeks ago in Mexico where she finished 44th.

LPGA spokesman David Higdon called Blasberg's death a "tough hit" for women's golf.

"She was a very popular player and well-liked and we're going to miss her," Higdon said. "This is a very close-knit group of players and tour and we're saddened by what happened."

How sad. What a beautiful and talented woman.


Very sad indeed. Condolences to her friends, colleagues and family

This just blew me away when i heard this. We followed her every year at the Wegmans LPGA event. What a terrible thing at such a young age.
