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.

Good on Team Canada! A great showing never the less. Henry Brunton, the team coach is a good friend of mine and I know how hard the RCGA has worked to develop world class players. It looks like it is working. CONGRATS to all involved!
