The Cayman Islands Golf Association has announced the team that will represent the Cayman Islands at the 2017 Caribbean Amateur Junior Golf Championships hosted by Trinidad from July 4-7.
Junior golfers played four qualifying rounds locally, with the cumulative top three of four scores for each golfer determining the qualification. CIGA officials said in a press release the organization is pleased to be sending a full boys team to the championships for the first time.
In the Boys 16-19 age division, Andrew Jarvis, Joe Purton and Joe Ribbins will represent Cayman.
Aaron Jarvis and Derek Peene qualified for the Boys 14-15 division and will be joined by James Bould, who will play up an age group to round out the full three-member team.
In the 11-13 age group, Justin Hastings, who took a commanding lead in the qualifiers, will be joined by his younger brother, Andy, in this division. The final spot for this age group saw four golfers vying for one spot to represent Cayman alongside Justin. With only a few strokes separating the pack, in the final round Andy Hastings pulled ahead of James Bould, Todd Purton and Tom Dickens to earn his place on the team.
In the Girls 11-13 division, Holly McLean and Lauren Needham placed first and second, respectively, earning them each a place on the team.
