University of Minnesota recruit Jon DuToit made history this past Monday at the Minnesota Section 2AAA golf tournament. The Chaska, Minn. native produced rounds of five-under par 67 and four-under par 68 for a 36-hole card of 135 at Oakdale Golf Club in Buffalo Lake. That bettered the section record by five shots and was good for medalist honors by seven shots.

“I had fun those two days.  It was a mindset I came into the section tournament with and it carried over to my play,” said DuToit. “I was happy to get the win in one of the toughest sections in the state. I was playing well coming into the tournament but had not put all facets of my game together until this week. I putted the ball well and played very solidly from tee to green.”

DuToit will head into next week’s Minnesota State Golf Tournament at Bunker Hills in Coon Rapids as the top ranked player in the state.

"I couldn't be more proud of the hard work Jon puts in to achieve his goals,” said Golden Gopher head coach John Carlson. “He has had a target on his back all year as the top ranked high school player and the only Minnesotan that will be playing for the Gophers from the 2012 graduating class. 

“He has handled that pressure like a champion and I am not surprised that he blew away a very strong field at Oakdale.  He is a determined golfer that I can't wait to coach starting in September."
