Dan Yustin shot a ridiculous -3, 67 in very difficult weather conditions today to win the amateur division of the WNY Open at Niagara Falls Country Club. He won the amateur division by 3 shots over Patrick Sheedy Jr. who shot an even par round of 70. Conditions were very difficult, with temperatures in the low to mid 40s, rain and sleet mix on and off throughout the day, and consistent 10 - 15 mph winds. Dan's round was the only under par round of the day, amateur or professional. See the link for Complete Results.
