Granite Pointe’s Lauren Taylor struggled in her opening and closing rounds of the BC Amateur Women’s Championship last week, finishing the four-round tournament tied for 13th.

Coming off a stellar freshman season at Portland State where she captured a pair of NCAA tournament titles, the 19-year-old took on the province’s best at the Alberni Golf Club.

Taylor opened the event by shooting a nine-over par 80 in a round that included a triple bogey on the tenth hole. In last Thursday’s second round, Taylor recovered firing a one-under 36 on the front nine. She finished the day with a respectable 75.

Taylor put herself back in the mix after an even par third round of 71, the second lowest score of the day. But Taylor once again struggled in the final round, eventually shooting an 81.

Taylor ended up with a four-round total of 307, well back of winner Christina Proteau who captured her third straight title by carding 290 over the four days.
