LINCOLN, Neb. — Cumberland’s Katie Legge got off to another slow start but righted the ship on her back nine, carding a second straight seven-over par 79 and tying for 33rd overall in the final round of the 19th annual NAIA Championships at Wilderness Ridge Golf Club.
The Portland native shot four-over on her first four holes of the day, starting at hole No. 10, and then bogeyed the 17th and 18th for a six-over par 41 on her first nine holes. The sophomore was even par on the first eight holes on the front side with a bogey on No. 3 before a birdie on the par-3 fourth, but she bogeyed her final hole for a second consecutive 79.
Legge ended the tournament with a 72-hole score of 316, just four shots from placing in the top 20 and six shots from tying for 11th overall in the field of 143.
She was one of just three individuals to make the cut for the final day, coming into Friday at 21-over 237 after carding a third-round 79 Thursday.
Legge shot up 34 spots with a second-round 76 Wednesday.
