Elm Park’s Anna Foster picked up her second top-10 for Auburn as the Tigers kicked their season into gear with a fifth place finish at the Mason Rudolph Championship.
The Tigers shot 284 (-4) for the second straight day and finished at 2-under for the weekend with Foster firing a one-under par 71 that included four birdies to sign off in style.
“It was about time we made some putts,” Auburn head coach Melissa Luellen said. “This team has such a strong belief with a strong finish on the last five holes. Within a span of 20 minutes, we went from ninth place to fourth. Team golf is so crazy, but that’s why I love it.”
Sophomore Foster shot under par all three days to finish in a tie for 10th at four-under. Senior Mychael O’Berry saved her best round for last with a 70 (-2) in the third round. It was the second straight round in the red for O’Berry who was four-under on Sunday’s back nine with four birdies and finished tied for 31st overall at 2-over.
That was the same score as Forrest Little’s Julie McCarthy who closed out her tournament with an even par 72.
