Playing at home suited Glenboro’s Josh Wytinck on the first day of the Canadian amateur men’s golf championship in Winnipeg.
Wytinck, shot a 5-under-par 67 on Monday at Southwood Golf and Country Club — the home course of Wytinck’s national champion Manitoba Bisons golf team — to sit one shot off the lead, held by Americans Brian Bullington and Jonathan Garrick. Wytinck had a brilliant start to his day, with birdies on four straight holes, starting with No.4. His only blemish was a double-bogey on the ninth hole, but he bounced back with three straight birdies on the back nine, from Nos. 12-14.
Dauphin’s Trevor Fox opened with a round of 4-over-par 74 that included a birdie and five bogeys at the Elmhurst Golf and Country Club.
The players will switch courses for the second round today, before playing the final two rounds at Elmhurst.
