Junior Evan Eby shot his best round of the year at the 4A boys state golf tournament held on Tuesday, May 18, at the Trysting Tree Golf Course in Corvallis. Eby carded a 44 on the front nine and a 40 on the back for an 84 finish.
Evan tied for 21st place out of 60 participants. He hit his drives well and limited his mistakes on the back. Eby had two pars on the front nine, and then lowered his score by four on the back with five pars and four bogies.
Coach Bill Mitchell said, “Evan is excited about playing next year, and I think he’s going to continue to improve. If he concentrates and focuses on his game, he potentially could be one of the best players in the state. He’s a good player, and if he shoots a bad score it’s just because he’s careless. He’s got the skills to be very good.”
