James Love, Denver

Propelled by a 63 in the second round on the Palm Valley GC in Goodyear, Ariz., the senior from Calgary shot a school-record 17-under 199 to win the Ron Moore Invitational by four shots over Nebraska’s Brady Schnell. It was the third career victory for Love (his ’05 Barona Cup win included a 62), who has broken par in each of his last eight rounds. (Photo courtesy of the Denver University.)

The sophomore led the Lady Vols to a dominating 38-shot win over New Mexico at the Dr. Donnis Thompson Invitational in Hawaii, with Tennessee shooting a four-over 856, 10 shots better than the school’s previous 54-hole best. Individually, Turner’s final-round 64 at the Kaneohe Klipper course gave her a three-under 210, to beat teammate Golda Johansson by four. (Photo courtesy of the University of Tennessee.)
