The Caesarea native posted a score of 214 strokes and was two under par after the 54 holes event while Argentina’s Tanco finished five under par.

“I had good opportunities for birdies, I just didn’t make them,” a disappointed Beck said. “I’m just starting to get better and get confident in my game and swing.”

The American Junior Golf Association event is sponsored by women’s golfing legend Annika Sorenstom and features the top 60 girls from around the world.

Both Beck and Tanco, 15, studied at the prestigious Leadbetter golfing academy.

Beck’s second-place followed victories at the University of Florida, Doral Publix and Verizon Junior Heritage tournaments and an eighth place at the Junior Orange Bowl.



Tanco took a share of the lead with Beck after the second round after shooting six under 66.

Both players entered Monday’s final round six shots clear of the field at five under par.
