Former Deacon Golfers Victorious

Two former Deacon golfers, Laura Diaz and Jay Sigel earned victories this past weekend on the LPGA and Senior PGA tours respectively.

Laura (Philo) Diaz held a slight lead going into Sunday's final round at the Corning Classic in New York. Although she didn't have one of her better rounds, Diaz's two under par final round moved her to 14 under par overall, giving her a two stroke win.

This was Diaz's second tour victory and the first in her home state of New York. With the win, Laura Diaz moves into second place on the LPGA tour money list, behind only Annika Sorenstam.
