Beaufort’s Mark Anderson Wins Tour Event In Colombia

Beaufort’s Mark Anderson fired a final-round 67 to finish off a four-shot victory at the Tour’s Country Club de Bogota Championship on Sunday in Colombia — Anderson’s first professional win since 2013.

Anderson’s week started with an 8-under-par 62 in Thursday’s first round, which put him one shot behind China’s Xinjun Zhang. After shooting even-par 71 in the second round, Anderson came back with a 66 in the third round to take the lead, and he played flawlessly under pressure Sunday, carding a bogey-free 67 to seal the win.

The Beaufort Academy graduate and former South Carolina Gamecocks star earned a $126,000 payday and vaulted to second on the Tour points list.
