The leaderboard tightened during moving day at the CJGA Mizuno National Junior Golf Championship yesterday at Rockway Vineyards Golf Course.

Mitchell MacLeod of Shanty Bay, ON, registered the low-score of the tournament with five birdies and one eagle guiding him to an amazing five-under 67.

MacLeod was lights out and his three-day total of even-par 216 puts him in a tie for the lead heading into the final round.

Tied with MacLeod for the lead in the Boys 15-19 division is Keaton Gudz of Victoria, BC, who shot a stellar two-under 70, which included four birdies.

After leading the tournament through two rounds, Josh Montgomery of Ancaster, ON, is now two-shots behind the leaders heading into the final round after shooting a two-over 74.

Following a second consecutive under-par round, Johnny Travale of Hamilton, ON, finds himself in the drivers seat heading into day four of the Boys 14 and Under division.

Travale registered three birdies and only one bogey to shoot a solid two-under 70. With a three-day total of one-under 215, Travale is narrowly holding onto the lead as Matthew Anderson of Mississauga, ON is right on his heels after shooting an even-par 72.

Sitting in third place is Marco Trstenjak of Winnipeg, MB, after he shot a third-round two-over 74 and is five-shots back of the leader heading into the final day.

Kennedy Bodfield of St. Catharines, ON, made a great comeback on moving day today to cut her deficit to only three shots heading into the final day in the Girls 11-19 division.

Bodfield shot a four-over 76 but still trails Eunice Hong of Thornhill, ON, after Hong shot 80.

Eunice's younger sister, Ellice Hong, sits in third place heading into the final round after shooting 78 and is seven shots back of her sister.
