LAS VEGAS (AP)—LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg died Sunday in a Las Vegas suburb according to police and her agent.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul said Monday that authorities were investigating the 25-year-old American’s death. It was not immediately clear whether foul play was involved.

Blasberg’s agent, Chase Callahan, confirmed her death but declined to provide details because of the investigation.

Messages left with the coroner’s office in Las Vegas on Monday were not returned.

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.

LPGA spokesman David Higdon called Blasberg’s death a “tough hit” for women’s golf.

“She was a very popular player and well-liked and we’re going to miss her,” Higdon said. “This is a very close-knit group of players and tour and we’re saddened by what happened.”

LPGA player Meg Mallon said the news will “hit hard” for tour participants.

“I’m just very sad and just really kind of sick to my stomach that a life ended so young,” Mallon said.

“People in Mexico passed her by or hit balls next to her on the range and everyone’s having their own moments right now,” she said.

Blasberg’s death was first reported by Golfweek magazine

Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel, "Pick up your shovel, mount your asses and camels, and I will lead you to the Promised Land." Nearly 75 years ago, Roosevelt said,"Lay down your shovels, sit on your asses, and light up a camel, this is the Promised Land." Now Obama has stolen your shovel..., taxed your asses, raised the price of camels and mortgaged the Promised Land!
