Updated: September 3, 2023

Tyson Shelley of Salt Lake City, Utah, shot rounds of 69-69-67-62 and won a two-hole playoff to clinch the 56th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship, hosted at Capilano Golf and Country Club in Vancouver, B.C.

Shelley began the day nine shots behind the leader, Jack Buchanan of Australia. Teeing off 40 minutes ahead of the final group, Shelley knew what he had to do to get back in contention, and he absolutely blistered the golf course with a bogey-free 62 in the final round, vaulting himself up the leaderboard to finish the championship at 13-under par after four rounds.
