Police and an agent for 25-year-old Erica Blasberg say the LPGA Tour golfer has died. Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul said Monday that authorities were investigating Blasberg's death on Sunday. It was not immediately clear whether foul play was involved. Blasberg played her only LPGA Tour event this year two weeks ago in Mexico and tied for 44th.

She found greater success in college, winning six times in two years at the University of Arizona and playing on the Curtis Cup team in 2004. She turned professional that year.
