Team Canada Amateur Squad member, Jared du Toit, finished T10 at 2-under par at the NCAA Division I Austin Regional at the University of Texas Golf Club.

After posting a 3-over par 74 in round one, the Kimberley, B.C., product rebounded with two solid scores. He carded a 2-under par 69 in the second round and was T12 after 36 holes.

To start round three Du Toit birdied the first hole for a second consecutive day, but gave it right back with a bogey on the third.

He then parred seven straight holes before making back-to-back birdies on 12 and 13. He finished his round with a birdie on 18 to post a 3-under par 68.

He finished 12 shots behind medallist Nick Voke of Iowa State, who posted a final-round score of 10-under par (61), thanks to eight birdies, an eagle and no bogeys to win by five strokes at 14-under par over Texas’ Doug Ghim.

Du Toit had seven top-10 finishes this season, including two first place results. He claimed sole possession of the top spot at The Prestige at PGA West, and was part of a three-way tie for first at the Amer Ari Invitational at Waikoloa King’s Course.

In the team competition the Sun Devils finished in 5th place, with a team score of 7-over par, securing the last spot available in the National Championship at Rich Harvest Farms in Sugar Grove, Ill., from May 26-31.

Du Toit, a senior, will look to help the Sun Devils improve on their 9th place finish in the stroke play portion of the tournament in 2016. Arizona State will be chasing their third title in school history. The first came in 1990, and the second in 1996.
