Final Leaderboard

Returning University of Minnesota sophomore Jon DuToit won the 2013 Minnesota State Open at Edinburgh USA Golf Club in Brooklyn Park, Minn. He won on the first hole of a three-way playoff.

DuToit, a Chaska native, carded a 4-under 68 on Sunday to finish 8-under overall. He started the day one stroke behind former Gopher Clayton Rask, who joined DuToit and Sammy Schmitz in a playoff. DuToit won the replay of the 18th hole with a birdie 3 while Rask and Schmitz made par.

Sunday’s 68 was DuToit’s best score of the weekend. He was under par each round, shooting a 71 on Friday and a 69 on Saturday.

During his freshman season with the Gophers, DuToit tied for eighth at the Big Ten Championships. He held the team’s second-lowest stroke average over the year.

Four current and former Gophers finished in the top five. In addition to Rask tying for second, Minnesota alumni Cameron White and Thomas Campbell finished fourth and fifth, respectively.

Incoming Gopher freshman Grady Meyer and recent graduate Robert Bell tied for 13th. David Haley Jr., also a senior last season for Minnesota, tied for 18th.
