Top-5 finish for Saskatoon’s Young

Saskatoon's Anna Young placed fifth in a NWGA event this week.

Anna Young is celebrating a top-5 finish in a tournament this week in Zellwood, Florida.

The Saskatoon product recently competed in an LPGA of Taiwan event but is happy to be back on North American soil. Young, 25, finished in a tie for fifth in the Zellwood Station tournament, a stop on the National Women’s Golf Association tour.

The five-time Saskatchewan amateur women’s champion fired rounds of 68, 71, and 70 to finish at seven under par, five strokes back of winner Greta Voelker. Young said she’s happy to be settled back into a routine to start the season.

“It has been nice being back in my routine here in Orlando, getting back on one time zone, going to my gym, and sleeping in my own bed. I felt like I did everything pretty well this week, nothing amazing and nothing terrible.  My main focus was staying in the present and I did that well,” she said after the event concluded Wednesday.

Fellow Canadian Valerie Tanguay also finished in a tie for fifth at the event.
