Canadians fall to Netherlands at World Am

Three time Canadian amateur champ Richard Scott shot 68 and James Love shot 69, but it wasn’t enough to beat the Netherlands’ Joost Luiten, who played the last five holes in 6-under par to take the World Amateur Team Championship.

Full story is here.

The comments from Canadian coach Doug Roxborough, Scott and Trip Kuehne speak for themselves:

“We didn’t lose it,” said Canada’s captain Doug Roxburgh. “The Netherlands won it. They made the birdies coming home.”
“You can’t question how good they are,” said Scott. “They were 22-under par. They went out and won it.”

“The Netherlands played great,” Kuehne said. “What Joost did out there is the stuff of legends.”

Now the question is what’s next for Scott — perhaps Canada’s most hotly tipped amateur.
