    by Alfie Lau

    Two years ago, when Jared du Toit was graduating from Selkirk Secondary, he didn’t have many options for his post-secondary golf career.

    It was a stroke of good luck that John Means at Idaho saw something in du Toit and got two solid seasons out of his leader. Not only did du Toit lead the Vandals in scoring (69.61), he won three times in his sophomore season.

    Means also told du Toit he was in the top two or three players he’s ever coached and not only did Means mean that, he knew that it might be time to let du Toit spread his wings.

    And those wings will take du Toit to Tempe, AZ this August, where he’s transferring from Idaho to Arizona State for his junior season.
