Emily Tubert played well during the first three days of the 13th U.S. Women's Amateur Championship. Unfortunately for the Burroughs High graduate, she couldn't run that string to four.
Tubert, 21, experienced her share of struggles Thursday in the round of 32 at the Country Club of Charleston in Charleston, S.C. But it was ultimately a bogey on the 19th hole that eliminated the University of Arkansas senior against Cammie Gray of Northport, Ala.
The match was decided on the extra hole in a sudden-death format.
The 2010 U.S. Women's Amateur Championship winner, Tubert led for 14 holes, but counted a five on the 19th hole of the round to fall to Gray. Back-to-back bogeys on the 18th and the 19th holes allowed the match to slip away from Tubert.
In the first two days of the tournament, Tubert played well in stroke play Monday and Tuesday, entering match play Wednesday as the sixth seed overall. She faced Ashlan Ramsey of Milledgeville, Ga. in a back-and-forth battle that went down to the wire before Tubert emerged with a 2-up victory on the 17th hole.
