Tomasz Anderson claimed another victory for the US college-based English golfers when he won the individual title in the Auburn Tiger Invitational at the Lake Course at Grand National Golf Club in Opelika, Alabama.

The 21-year-old from Hertfordshire, who is at Jacksonville State in Florida, carded rounds of 67, 69 and 70 for a 54-hole total of 206, winning by a shot from the fast-finishing Chad Ramey of Mississippi State.

Anderson, who reached the semi-finals of last summer’s English Amateur Championship at Frilford Heath, was lying second after 36 holes but surged to the top of the leaderboard with his closing two-under-par 70 to finish on ten under. He held off Ramey, whose four-under 68 was the low rounds of the day, to claim his fourth college tournament title.

However, in spite of Anderson's best efforts his team finished well behind the winners, Auburn.

The event was sponsored by former Auburn player and US PGA Tour pro Jason Dufner.
