Hermiston athlete Colby Lerten, 11, will take his golfing skills to Salem.
Lerten claimed first place at the Oregon Junior Golf Tournament at Wildhorse on Friday August 10 with a score of 49, and again in La Grande the next day with a score of 44.
Lerten has been playing golf since he was three years old.
“He’s been swinging things like they were golf clubs ever since he could walk,” said his father Kris.
Lerten will compete at the Charlotte’s Tournament of Champions at the Creekside Golf Club in Salem on Saturday, September 8.
