(WDAY Sports) - Amy Anderson seems to save her best golf for the biggest stages.

Think back to the Junior Amateur a couple years ago or earlier this summer with the NCAA Finals and the Women's Open. Add another tourney to that list, the U-S Amateur after a win today.

Anderson was facing Kina Rodriguez from the Phillipines. This was back and forth, this one for birdie at the 11th. It just breezes past the hole. Anderson remains 1-up.

This her 2nd shot to the 15th. This is terrific and leads to a birdie. Anderson wins the match and goes 1 up. Move forward to the 16th, Anderson nearly off the green, drills the birdie putt. That hole is halved and she remains 1 up.

Then her touch shows up again at 18. Another terrific chip shot, that putt is conceded and Anderson is into the round of 32, winning 1 up. Anderson will face Moriya Jutonagarn tomorrow morning.
