Finishing with a flurry of birdies, University of South Florida senior Melanie Green earned a top 15 finish at the NCAA Division 1 Bermuda Run Regional golf tournament which concluded this afternoon at the Bermuda Run Country Club in North Carolina.

Green, a Medina High graduate, birdied three of the final five holes to post a closing round of 3 under par 69 and finish the three day event with a 4 under par total of 212.

Finishing 8 shots off the pace and tied for 13th, Green opened the tourney with an even par round of 72 on Monday and then had a 1 under par round of 71 on Tuesday.

USF finished 8th out of 12 teams in the regional.

The top five teams and the top individual finisher, who is not a member of the top five teams, now advances to the NCAA national championship tournament in California.
