Ponte Vedra High School graduate and Jacksonville University golfer Hannah Berman shot a 1-under 71 to finish with a career-best 216 and a first ever runner-up medalist performance at the Pinehurst Challenge earlier this week.
"I'm really proud of Hannah," Jacksonville University Head Coach and Nocatee resident Jennifer Borocz said. "She worked extremely hard in the offseason and it's showing.
"She knew she left a lot out on the course last year as she transitioned to JU and her goal this season was to step up and be a leader," Borocz added.
The junior from Ponte Vedra Beach, who transferred to JU last year to be closer to home and to have the chance to play Division I golf, entered the day tied for sixth after going 72-73 on Monday. She started and ended on a high note, birdieing her first and final two holes of the day. She finished the week with nine total birdies, third most, and was JU's best scorer on both Par 3s, where she shot even par, and on Par 4s, where her 1-over scoring was third best in the field. Her 54-hole score is tied for seventh best in program history.
