DuToit, a sophomore, tied for eighth at the conference meet as a true freshman. He was second on the team with a 74.72 season stroke average. DuToit won the Minnesota State Open this past summer.

Mendez is one of the Gophers’ four incoming freshmen. He is one of the top-ranked amateurs in his class, and in July he became the first Costa Rican to win the Callaway Junior World Golf Championship. Mendez also played in the Toyota Junior World Cup and won the Bob Jones Junior this summer.
