Anderson finished with an impressive score of 207 for the three-day tournament, which ties for the lowest overall record first set in 1965 by Bob Murphy, Jr.
Anderson carefully shot over the water hazard, on the right side of the green, and set the ball a few feet from the flagstick, providing a good shot at the hole.
Anderson continued his championship performance with a wedge shot from the middle of the fairway, about 100 yards off the green, to hit the pin, leaving him a shot for par on hole 17 and tied for the record going to the last hole.
