The Duke freshman was mobbed after a birdie on the second hole of a play-off against Virginia senior Briana Mao to claim the title and remain the No.1 ranked women's golfer in the country.

The 20-year-old, whose twin sister Lisa is also on the Duke team which finished second in the team event, said: 'I’ve been playing pretty solid all year. It feels really good to get the win. To get an ACC title, it doesn’t really get much better than that.'

Maguire can now look forward to the NCAA national championships next month.
