LEWISTON, New York (Tyler Costigan/Golf Canada) — The good times continued for newfound Canadian fan-favourite Jared du Toit, who rallied with a final-round 67 (-3) to crack the Top-5 at the Porter Cup.

His effort on Saturday solidified another strong result following his captivating performance at the RBC Canadian Open last week, in which the 21-year-old finished inside the Top-10 to earn the Gary Cowan award (low amateur) amongst the world’s best athletes.
