Sarah Anast was quick to give a shout out after her win Saturday.
“Emily helped me a lot,” Anast said, talking about her caddy Emily Fortgang. “She kept my mind off golf. I didn’t have to think about it and about what I was doing. I know I can play, I just had to go out and do it.”
Anast trailed big early to her opponent in the women’s Atomic City Invitational final, Anita Dunmar, but got on a roll to cut into that lead. Anast would hold on at the final hole to take a 1-up victory Saturday.
Anast, a former Los Alamos Hilltopper state champion who now plays for Colorado State University and majors in sports medicine, dropped a 6-foot putt on the ninth hole — the women’s flight started on the back nine — to secure the victory.
Fortgang, Anast’s former teammate, kept the mood light for her all day, which helped her relax, particularly after Dunmar started Saturday’s play as hot as a pistol.
Dunmar, a nine-time tournament winner herself, grabbed a 4-hole lead just five holes into the match and led by one after 13 holes.
