Enumclaw’s Tyler Salsbury played his way to the pinnacle of the state’s amateur golfing world, winning the Washington State Amateur.

The three-day tournament wrapped up this (Thursday) afternoon at the Wine Valley Golf Club in Walla Walla. The 88th annual Amateur was conducted by the Washington State Golf Association.

Salsbury, an Enumclaw High graduate, finished at 209, just one stroke ahead of Krikland’s Frank Garber and Richalnd’s Cole Lorenzo. He had rounds of 68 and 70 on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, to climb to the top of the leader board. Thursday, he held off the rest of the field, using back-to-back birdies on Holes 12 and 13 to stretch his precarious lead. A bogey on No. 15 made things more interesting, but Salsbury played par golf over the final three holes to take the championship.
