A Kimberley golfer has been named to BC Golf’s roster for the Morse Cup that teams will vie for in the 50th Pacific Coast Amateur Championship in Seattle in July.

Jared du Toit, the 2015 B.C. Men’s Amateur Champion, who hails from Kimberley and competes in NCAA with the University of Idaho, will join two other teammates hoping to be the next B.C. team to capture the Morse Cup since it was done on home soil at the Capilano Golf & Country Club in 2013.

He finished tied for 6th in the Pacific Coast Amateur individual competition last year while also contributing to the BC Team’s 4th place finish in the Morse Cup. His strong NCAA season included a medallist performance at the Wyoming Cowboy Classic among his five overall Top 10 finishes.

A member of Golf Canada’s National Amateur Golf Squad, du Toit has been the number one ranked male amateur golfer in Canada almost exclusively since October of 2015.

Du Toit joins Vancouver’s Stuart MacDonald, who finished 2nd to du Toit in the Amateur, and SFU Clansmen Golf Team member, Chris Crisologo from Richmond.

MacDonald finished solo 2nd to Jared du Toit in the 2015 BC Men’s Amateur. He later added a T13th finish in the Canadian Men’s Amateur in the summer while joining du Toit as members of BC’s winning Willingdon Cup team in the jointly held competition.

MacDonald, who was named to the Team Canada National Amateur Squad for 2016, also tallied two top-10 finishes for his NCAA golf team at Purdue University, including a T6th at the Jack Nicklaus Invitational in Ohio.

Crisologo was T7th in the 2015 BC Men’s Amateur. He recorded a T8th in the NCAA Division II Championship in 2015 and finished sixth overall at the NCAA national championships, being named GNAC Freshman of Year, All-Region First Team and NCAA All-American 2nd team. Crisologo also just recently shared medallist honours in the Mustang Intercollegiate in Arizona.

The team Championship, consisting of PCGA member association teams only, will be conducted over the first 36 holes. The two low scores of three each day will be totalled to determine the winning association team of the Morse Cup competition and Trophy. In the event of a tie, co-champions will be declared.

The individual Championship is be conducted over 72 holes with no cut. In the event of a tie, the individual champion will be determined by a hole-by-hole playoff immediately after the conclusion of play.
