Sophomore Micaela Farah wrapped up a standing individual performance, shooting one-over par, 73, to finish two-under par for the tournament and place seventh, individually. She was impressive on the final holes for the third straight day, making birdie on two of the last four, setting her three-round total of the final four holes at seven-under par.
