Try as she might, Sarah Harrison couldn’t get over the hump.

Harrison trailed by four shots when the final round began at the 2013 E-Z-GO Vaughn Taylor Championship at Jones Creek Golf Club on Thursday. She made a run at leader Dylan Kim on the back nine, but despite birdieing three holes in a four-hole stretch, the opening deficit proved to be too much to overcome.

With a bogey and double bogey on the final two holes, she ended the day with a 2-over 74, finishing the tournament in second place, five shots back at 7-over.

“That’s typical me to have a birdie and then the next hole have a bogey,” said Harrison, who is entering her junior year at Augusta Christian.

Overall, Harrison was positive about her play in the three-day tournament.

“I feel pretty good,” said Harrison, who was three strokes better than the third-place finisher. “I feel like I know what I need to work on now. It’s not my putting anymore, it’s my alignment.”

When the summer began, Harrison wasn’t slated to play in the American Junior Golf Association event, but a third-place finish at the AJGA’s Killington (Vt.) Junior Golf Championship gave her an exemption to any tour event for the next two years. Because she hadn’t registered for the tournament, she was preparing to earn a spot by playing in the Sunday qualifier. That became moot when she got a phone call beforehand telling her there was a spot for her if she wanted it.

Lakeside High school sophomore Hunter Dunagan was the county’s top boys finisher, coming in tied for eighth after posting a 5-over 221 on the final day.

“I felt really good about today,” said Dunagan after the final round. “I had a double (bogey) on the first hole, but after that I played really well until my first bogey on 17, but I had two birdies in between.”

Overall, Dunagan was happy with the way he played.

“I played well the whole week,” Dunagan said. “I played a whole lot better than I scored. It’s just the last few holes kind of messed me up all three days. I felt like I had a great tournament.”
