SEASIDE, Calif. — Robby Salomon and Brandon Wu are tied atop the 36-hole leaderboard at the inaugural Bayonet Black Horse Amateur Championship.

Wu, who will begin his collegiate career this fall as a member of the Stanford Cardinal, has a pair of 71s to his name.

Soli, as well as Drew Bender, are a stroke behind in a tie for third place while first-round leader Seungiae Maeng struggled to a 78 after opening with 69 on Friday.
