Sahalee Players': Summerhays saves best for last

SAMMAMISH, Wash. (July 6, 2007)-- Daniel Summerhays of Provo, UT, dominated the field in the final round of play, carding a 5-under-par 67 to win the 14th Sahalee Players Championship.

Summerhays, the 2007 Ping Cougar Classic Champion and All Mountain West Conference first team member, saved his best round for last using the hot and dry conditions to make five birdies and an eagle and card the lowest round of the week. His total was seven strokes clear of the field on the 6875 yard championship layout of Sahalee Country Club.

Summerhays, 23, will be a senior at Brigham Young University. This is his first nationally recognized amateur victory.

Summerhays and runner-up, Eddie Olson of Aptos, CA were the only two players to finish under par for the championship. Olson finished at 1-under par 287.

Defending champion and local player, Kyle Stanley of Gig Harbor, Wash., finished in the 3rd spot after carding his highest round of the week, 5-over par 77.

ABOUT THE Sahalee Players Championship

TOURNAMENT INFORMATION:
Inaugurated in 1992, the Sahalee Players Championship (SPC) at its inception strove to annually showcase the best amateur golfers in the Pacific Northwest. Past champions include Kyle Stanley, Casey Martin, Peter Uihlein, Nick Taylor, Daniel Summerhays, Ryan Moore, Chris Williams, Arron Oberholser and Jason Gore. In addition to the annual Sahalee Players Championship, the Ted Robinson- designed course has also tested the world’s best when it hosted the 2010 U.S. Senior Open, which was won by Bernhard Langer; the 1998 PGA Championship, won by Vijay Singh and the 2002 World Golf Championships-NEC Invitational, won by Craig Parry. The course opened for play in the late 1960s. The name Sahalee -- "High Heavenly Ground" in the language of the native Chinook -- was chosen to reflect the Northwest's heritage and tradition.
