Glenboro’s Josh Wytinck

Wytinck, the 20-year-old native of Glenboro, fired a one-under 71 at Outaouais today.

His score helped Manitoba get off to a decent start on the first day of the two-day interprovincial team competition.

Manitoba, also counting the five-over 77 Outaouais score of Breezy Bend’s Garth Collings, is at four-over for the first day and stands in fifth place, seven shots off the pace-setters from Alberta and Ontario.

Aaron Cockerill of Teulon, the other Manitoba team player, shot 79 today.

Also posting a good first round at the Canadian Am was St. Charles’ Derek East, who matched Wytinck with a 71 at Outaouais.

Bryce Barr of Southwood was 76 at Camelot today, while Pine Ridge’s Bobby Wiebe was 77 at Camelot.

All players will switch courses on Tuesday and then the cut will be made to the low 60 players and ties for the final 36 holes on Thursday and Friday.

Scores were not yet complete today in the 240-player field but the early leader was Ontario’s Alex Carigan, who was 66 at Camelot.
