Leopold, who made headlines with a run of upsets as the No. 64 seed at the 2011 U.S. Amateur at Erin Hills, was medalist at the Point Judith U.S. Open local qualifier on Tuesday and continued his hot play.

Slade, who's coming off a solid freshman year at Bryant University, birdied two of his final three holes to notch a tie at the top with the veteran mid-amateur Leopold.
