He won five times during his junior season at Georgia Tech and was runner-up at the NCAA Championship in May, also earning ACC player of the year and first-team All-American honors among a handful of accolades. Last week, he tied for fifth in his first pro tournament, the Web.com Tour's Air Capital Classic in Wichita, Kan., which he played as an amateur.

Tyler Salsbury walking Enumclaw Golf Course during his 13-under 57 round on June 19.

Tyler Salsbury broke his own course record on Thursday evening at Enumclaw (Wash.) Golf Course, and it wasn’t just any course record.

Salsbury shot 13-under 57 at the par-70 5,561-yard course, a municipal golf course that Salsbury calls his home course. His round included nine birdies and two eagles and only 22 putts.

The last known 57 was former Alabama standout Bobby Wyatt when he was just 17 during the Alabama Boys State Junior Championship.
