Blackhawk wins at LPGA

Crowds gathered at Blackhawk Country Club for the culmination of the Longs Drugs Challenge to see "girl power" in action as professional women golfers converged from around the world to take part in the LPGA golf tournament.

Norwegian Suzann Pettersen won the $165,000 purse Sunday after a sudden death playoff against Lorena Ochoa. The tournament began in 1996 but began to play in Blackhawk for the first time last year.

Danville Area Chamber of Commerce and the Town of Danville manned a booth for people to learn more about what the area has to offer. For photos, visit DanvilleWeekly.com.
