Enumclaw golfer Tyler Salsbury places eighth in amateur championship
Enumclaw golfer Tyler Salsbury fired a final-round 72 and rocketed to a Top 10 finish in last week’s Washington State Men’s Amateur Championship.
The prestigious, annual tourney – conducted by the Washington State Golf Association - was played at Chambers Bay in University Place.
Salsbury, who pocketed a handful of honors while playing at Enumclaw High and now competes for the University of Washington, finished in a three-way tie for eighth place. He opened the three-day tournament with a round of 75 and carded an 80 on Day 2 to sink down the leaderboard before his impressive finish on the final day of competition.
Salsbury’s 72 was the best round turned in on Day 3; there were just six rounds better than 72 registered during the tournament.
The state’s amateur championship, the 87th annual affair, traditionally attracts the finest players from throughout the region.
