Returning Gopher golfer Jon DuToit captured the 2015 Minnesota Golf Association (MGA) Amateur Championship at the Northland Country Club on Wednesday. The soon-to-be senior fired a final round 68 to overcome a five-stroke deficit and win the title.
DuToit used an eagle on the second hole of the day to highlight a 3-under par round and win by a stroke. The Chaska, Minn. native's final round score tied for the lowest round of the tournament.
Wednesday's score was the top round of DuToit's circuit of the Northland Country Club as the returner notched rounds of 74 and 72 to open the tournament, respectively.
The captain is no stranger to success in MGA events as he won the 2013 Minnesota State Open.
DuToit was joined on the links by fellow teammate Riley Johnson and future Gopher Justin Doeden.
Johnson finished in sixth following successive rounds of 74, 73 and 71 to end the tournament at 2-over. Doeden also finished in the top 20 as the recently added transfer carded a final round score of 72 to tie for 15th overall.
