Juliana Murcia’s golf swing would make Picasso jealous, and fittingly so since she is an art major at Arizona State. Murcia, a senior, was a member of the 2009 NCAA Championship team and was named a second-team All-American by the National Golf Coaches Association in her junior year. She has recorded two collegiate victories, including a tie for first at this year’s Pac-10 Championship. In 2008, she won the Colombian Open and was a member of the Colombian World Amateur Team.
