Los Altos resident Daulet Tuleubayev is headed to this year’s U.S. Amateur Championship.
Tuleubayev earned the only spot avaiable in a 36-hole qualifier held Monday at Turlock Golf and Country, shooting 15-under 129 to beat the field by four strokes. Finishing in second was Logan Lowe at 133.
Tuleubayev paved his way with a first round 62 that featured 10 birdies with zero bogeys. Following a front-nine 32, he’d keep the momentum going by carding four straight birdies from hole Nos. 10 through 13.
This year’s U.S. Amateur will be held August 14-20 at Riviera CC in Pacific Palisades.
