The confidence continues to grow for Winnipeg’s Braxton Kuntz.
Earlier this month, the Breezy Bend Country Club member won the Men’s Junior Championship presented by the Alex & Peggy Colonello Foundation in Shilo, today he tied his career low carding a six under 66 and heads into the final two rounds of the Nott Autocorp Men’s Amateur atop of the leaderboard.
Kuntz fired a 34 on the front and 32 on the back at the Neepawa Golf and Country Club, with his most impressive run featuring birdies on the 7th, 9th, 10th and 11th holes.
Ryan Sholdice, also of Breezy Bend, and first round leader Drew Jones of the Shilo Country Club are one stroke off the lead. Sholdice made consecutive birdies to finish his round on the 16th, 17th and 18th holes shooting a five under par 67, while Jones finished at even par 72.
