Roberta Liti's First Top 10? She Made It a Win

Roberta Liti is a junior on the Arizona State women's golf team. And going into the 2017 Ping/ASU Invitational - a big tournament in NCAA women's golf - Liti had not yet posted a Top 10 finish in a college golf tournament.

She has now - and Roberta now has a victory, too.

Liti beat her ASU teammate Monica Vaughn by a stroke to record NCAA win No. 1 - and career Top 10 No. 1 - finishing at 10-under 206. She shot rounds of 69, 69 and 68. It was a great tournament all-around for the host school, as Arizona State also won the team title, and with a tournament record score of 25-under.

Roberta is from Siena, Italy. She won the Italian Championship in 2013 and was runner-up in the Girls' British Open Amateur Championship in 2013. She's been a steady performer at Arizona State since arriving, and now she's a winner.

But recently on social media, she started spelling it "Hyunju Yoo." And we figure she knows better than anyone how to translate the Korean spelling of her name into an English spelling.
