Du Toit’s six-under-par secures San Diego spot on MJT at Predator Ridge

Vernon, BC – (August 28, 2012) – MJT players from across western Canada came together in Vernon, British Columbia, to compete for four division titles in the MJT Okanagan Junior Championship at Predator Ridge Golf Resort on August 26th and 27th. An first-class golf experience and two fantastic weather days were capped off by 17-year-old Jared Du Toit being crowned MJT Okanagan Junior Champion and receiving an exemption into the San Diego Junior Amateur Golf Championship which is held in January 2013 near San Diego, CA, USA.

Du Toit, 17, of Kimberley, BC, managed the difficult Predator Ridge course with relative ease, firing back-to-back rounds of 68 (six-under-par 136), good enough for a three shot victory in the Boys 17-19 Division. “The course was great, the greens were lush, and the conditions were A+,” said Du Toit, who has just moved up from the Boys 14-16 division after a birthday. “This was my first 17-19 tournament and it’s good to know I can win in both divisions.” Finishing second in the division was Steven Lee, 17, of Kelowna, who shot two excellent rounds of 68-71 (139), while third place went to Victor Baptiste, 17, of Oliver, BC, who carded 70-71 (141).
