Anderson finished her 3rd round in the morning.

Her scores, along with most others today, had everyone saying "oh deer!" as very few mustered a round under par.

On the par four 5th, Anderson chipping from just off the green, rolls it well by. You are thinking, oh-oh, but the birthday girl calmly steps up and saves par, rolling it in. Unfortunately, she didn't make as many as she hoped in round three, shooting a 10-over 81.

She bounced back in her final round with a 3-over 74 for a 4 day total of 17-over. Many players were unable to finish however, so they'll finish up this morning. Hee Kyung Seo leads it. American Kristie Kerr is two shots back with 2 to play. After the tournament wrapped for Anderson, we asked her how she was feeling.
