Wallen, who will enter his senior season at the University of Wyoming this fall, shot rounds of 72, 71 and 72 to tie Sam Warkentin at 215 – five strokes behind Puyallup’s Chase Carlson and Derek Bayley, who had matching low scores of 210. Carlson beat Bayley, of Rathdrum, Idaho, in a six-hole playoff to claim the title.
Earlier this summer, Wallen advanced to the quarterfinals of the Pacific Northwest Men’s Amateur, and found out he was selected a Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-America Scholar for the 2015-16 season, becoming the 11th Cowboy to receive the honor, which requires golfers to participate in at least 50 percent of their team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke average less than 76 and maintain a 3.2 cumulative GPA to qualify.
