CORVALLIS, Ore. - Oregon State women's golfer Anica Yoo won the individual title at the 2012 BC Junior Girls' Championship in Osoyoos, British Columbia, Canada on Friday, a day after firing a course record 7-under 65.
The sophomore-to-be finished the 72-hole stroke play competition with an 11-under 74-70-65-68--277 at the par-72 Osoyoos Golf and Country Club to edge Taylor Kim, who is Yoo's teammate on the Team Canada Development Squad, by four strokes.
Yoo opened the tournament with a 2-over 74 on Tuesday and got back to even par with a 2-under 70 on Wednesday. She vaulted into a tie for the lead with Kim after playing a near-flawless round on Thursday that included eight birdies and only one bogey to set the course record with a 7-under 65. The previous course record was a 6-under 66 that was set on Tuesay by Kim.
In Friday's final round, Kim had a two-stroke advantage through six holes before Yoo finished with four birdies and no bogeys to card a 4-under 68, while Kim had three bogeys and one birdie over the final 12 holes to finish with an even-par 72. They were the only two golfers in the field to finish under par.
Yoo, a native of Port Coquitlam, B.C., had a successful freshman campaign for the Oregon State women's golf team as she played in every tournament and posted a scoring average of 76.51, the third best on the team. Her best round was a 2-under 70 in the final round of the Wildcat Invitational and her best finish was a tie for 12th at the Edean Ihlanfeldt Invitational.
