Kimberley’s Jared duToit is still alive at the 2014 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship in Winnipeg following three rounds of play.

After shooting an opening-round 70, duToit faltered Tuesday afternoon as he fired a second-round score of 75.

Sitting three-over par, duToit slipped past the cut established at four-over.

With two rounds left to play, duToit made the most of his opportunity Wednesday morning, shooting a third-round 70 and scraping his way into a tie for 34th place.

There are 72 players still in contention.

As of press time Wednesday, duToit is 13 strokes back of Corey Conners who sits alone atop the leader board at 10-under.

Kimberley Golf Club director of golf Tom Vold has coached duToit since 2011.

“His absolute strongest asset…is his competitive spirit,” Vold said. “He is a very cerebral player in the fact he doesn’t get in his own way.”

The fourth and final round of play at the 2014 Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship takes place this morning at Elmhurst Golf & Country Club in Winnipeg. DuToit tees off at 7:45 a.m. alongside Ricardo Celia of Colombia and Scott Secord of Calgary.

DuToit recently completed his freshman year at the University of Idaho where he competed in 11 tournaments as a member of the Idaho Vandals golf team. With an average score of 72.33, DuToit registered the best scoring average on the team, earning first-team all-Western Athletic Conference and Freshman of the Year honours.

The winner of the Canadian Men’s Amateur Championship earns a spot in the 2014 U.S. Amateur Championship at the Atlanta Athletic Club (Highlands Course) in Johns Creek, Ga. (Aug. 11 to 17) as well as the 2015 RBC Canadian Open in Oakville,Ont. at world-renowned Glen Abbey Golf Club (July 20 to 26, 2015).
