With three players at even-par 70 and three other players at one-over 71, it's still anybody's tournament at the IGA Public Links at Rozella Ford. Although the course played shorter than usual Thursday, inclimate weather at the start of the day and challenging greens prevented anyone from going really low and taking an early lead. But of the players in the top 10 so far, Randy Nichols (70) is the only player who has won this event previously. Brooks Snyder came close in 2009, setting the new course record at Royal Hylands the first day, and now he shares first this year after the opening round. John McMillen is the other player tied for the lead.
Final round play begins at 8am Friday morning. See pairings and standings here
