Canadian Amateur 1 Stroke Back Heading Into Final Round at Canadian Open After Eagling the 18th

That’s how you roll the rock! Put it in there with some oomph. Everybody loves that.

That’s Jared du Toit (not pronounced “du Twat,” sadly), the 21-year-old Canadian amateur battling for his country’s national championship. A Canadian has not won the Canadian Open in 62 years and an amateur has not won on the PGA Tour since 1991, which adds to the plethora of storyline’s this week.

Thank god, because it’s the RBC Canadian Open — the RBC Canadian Open needs storylines. Badly. It’s sandwiched between 2 major championships and, well, it’s in Canada.

Du Toit plays golf at Arizona State. Fitting, for when Phil won the Telecom Open as an amateur in 1991, he too was a junior at Arizona State.


(In classic Phil fashion, he tripled the 14th before birdieing the 72nd hole to win by 1)

Du Toit met his caddie on Tuesday:

Burke and du Toit had never met until Tuesday when a mutual friend had put them in touch. They played a round of golf together at Glen Abbey Golf Club in Oakville, Ont., before Burke returned to his day job as a teacher and coach at nearby Piper’s Heath Golf Club.

Here’s our leaderboard heading into Sunday afternoon. Sneds clinging to a 1-shot lead with Twat and our boy DJ tied at dash-8.

Gonna be a nice, lazy, hot afternoon. Great time to couch it up, soak up the greatest invention of all time (air conditioning), and toss on some golf. Enjoy.
