NOBLESVILLE, Indiana — Facing Amanda Jacobs in the Round of 64, Sarah Davison headed to the 16th hole 3 down with three holes to play.
Davison proceeded to hit great wedge shots on two consecutive holes, which led to birdies and extended the match to the 18th hole. However, she hit her tee shot on the par 3 well short and into the hazard fronting the green, ending her comeback bid and, for the second straight year, her run in the U.S. Women’s Mid-Amateur in the first round of match play a few weeks ago.

Arrington, Briana NEW 8-14.jpg
