Glenboro’s Josh Wytinck and his University of Manitoba team took over top spot in the team event after the third round of the Canadian university and college golf championships at Winnipeg’s Southwood Golf and Country Club on Thursday.
The team shot 3 under par on Thursday and made up 12 strokes on the UBC Thunderbirds to take a two-stroke lead at 1 over par overall heading into today’s final round.
"(Thursday) was the windiest of the three days so far and we have played here before in these conditions," Wytinck said in a press release. "I made more putts today and happy where my game is. We made up some ground and in a great position in the team competition. Everyone is very confident for tomorrow."
Wytinck, meanwhile, shot a 2-under-par 70, his best round of the event, and sits in a tie for third place in the individual men’s event at 1 under par through 54 holes. Dylan Thornborough, who’s also from Glenboro and plays for the University of Lethbridge, sits in a tie for 80th place at 21 over par.
UBC’s Scott Secord is in firm control of the singles competition with a 10 stroke lead heading into today’s final round.
