Napier holding top-5 spot in Canada
Arkansas State University senior Tanner Napier shot a 2-over 72 Wednesday but is in a three-way tie for fifth place at 4-under 206, three strokes out of the lead at the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada.
Napier, a two-time All-Sun Belt Conference selection, had two birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey on his card Wednesday. He is tied with Canadians Matt Williams and Josh Whalen and has the second-best score of any American in the field.
Camilo Aguado of Colombia leads the tournament at 7-under 203 going into today’s final round after shooting an even-par 70 Wednesday. The tournament winner earns an exemption into the U.S. Amateur Championship and next year’s RBC Canadian Open.
