Anderson, who plays collegiately at the University of Idaho, was one-over through five holes, but totaled four birdies with no bogies the rest of the way to finish the qualifier at 3-under par. Finishing in second place was Joe Torkelson (Lake Oswego, Ore.), former teammate of Anderson at Lake Oswego High School. Torkelson, who attends Creighton University, shot a 2-under par 70 to earn runner-up honors.
Adam Harrington (Portland, Ore.) and 2017 Portland City Championship winner Noah Yano (Happy Valley, Ore.) tied for third place at 1-under par. Former University of Idaho golfer Craig O'Meara (Happy Valley, Ore.) earned fifth place at even par.
A challenging day on the golf course led to 81 (+9) being the cut line. Six players tied at 9-over par, finalizing the 38-player field that advanced to the Championship proper.
