Logjams among leaders at amateur championships

Unity's Justin Wood has at least a share of the lead at both men's amateur championships.

The wind stayed down throughout the day on Tuesday allowing 11 competitors in the Men’s Amateur and Mid-Amateur Championships to shoot under par. 2016 champion Justin Wood of Unity and Saskatoon’s Ty Campbell are tied for the amateur lead at 5-under, 67.
