In damp and windy conditions Adrian Anderson of Murrells Inlet, S.C. stayed steady en route to her first victory at the 12th Jimmy Anderson Girls’ Invitational. 

 

“It’s an awesome feeling to finally get the bag and the hat,” said Anderson. “I’ve been waiting years for this. I didn’t play my best today but the conditions were definitely tougher today with a wet golf course and the wind. I’m just happy I was able to pull through and make it happen.”

 

Anderson finished the tournament with a two day total of 2-under-par, 142, and played clutch golf coming down the stretch on Sunday. 

 

“Yesterday my three birdie stretch made a huge difference,” said Anderson. “Today it was just all about sticking through the tough times.” 

 

Sitting at even par with only holes remaining, Anderson played a terrific back nine at Jacksonville Country Club, rolling in birdies on the Par-4 10th and Par-5 15th holes to fire a 2-under-par, 35 on that back nine to come away with a two stroke victory. 

 

“I did expect to play well coming into this event,” said Anderson. “I’d been playing pretty well before this, today was a little hard but it was tough out there.” 

 

Finishing by herself in second place is Sahana Mantha of Charlotte, N.C. Mantha recorded a two day total of Even Par, 144. Mantha had a strong finish to her final round as well, playing the last eight holes in 1-under-par, thanks to a birdie at the 15th. 

 

Rounding out the top five in a tie for third place are Ellen Yu of Greensboro, N.C., Nicole Nash of Charlotte, N.C., and Maya Beasley of Pinehurst, N.C. All three competitors finished with a two day total of 1-over-par, 145.

Established in 1954, Jacksonville Country Club provides a tremendous George Cobb design located in Onslow County, that can challenge golfers of all skill levels. Jacksonville CC was one of Cobb’s earliest golf course design projects, and still holds up to the modern game. 

 

Jimmy Anderson was the head golf professional at Jacksonville Country Club for over 25 years.  Each Saturday morning, he conducted a junior golf clinic to help spread the game of golf to the next generation.  During his tenure at Jacksonville CC, he taught many juniors including Mallory Miller, the 1987 N.C. Junior Champion and numerous future collegiate and golf professionals. Not only did he teach the game of golf, but was always there with a helpful word of encouragement to any young golfer.
