NDSU's Anderson finishes second at World University Golf Championships
LIBEREC, Czech Republic – Amy Anderson’s bid for a victory at the World University Golf Championships came up one shot short.
Anderson, who will be a senior on North Dakota State’s women’s golf team next season, shot a final-round 68 on Friday. But Camila Hedberg Bertrand of Spain surged ahead of Anderson with a final-round 64.
Bertrand finished at 271 for the tournament, while Anderson, of Oxbow, N.D., was one stroke back.
Anderson moved in front during the second round, then watched her lead swell to three strokes entering Friday’s play.
Anderson also helped the Americans to a second-place finish in the team race. Spain and the United States finished tied at 545 strokes, but Spain won the team title via a tiebreaker.
The United States team was made up of Anderson, Emilie Burger and Caroline Powers.
The team competition uses the scores of the best two golfers in each round. All four of Anderson’s rounds were used.
Twenty-one countries were represented at the event. It marked the second overseas tournament for Anderson, who competed for Team USA in the Curtis Cup that pits the United States against Great Britain and Ireland.
