He led Justin Hastings (72) and Aaron Jarvis (75) going into round 2. Andrew shot a steady 75 in the second round and held onto the overall lead, winning the championship over Justin, who finished a close second after shooting a 2 under par 69, and Aaron, who finished third with 72.
The third division for the younger players was contested over nine holes from the red tees. Out of a field of 10 players, Danny Lyne won with a score of 42. Sam Mclean came second with a score of 46.
During the trophy ceremony, the Cayman Islands Golf Association Junior Committee thanked sponsors for their support and all the volunteers for their time. They also thanked all the North Sound Club staff for their help with the event and for having the course playable given the heavy rains over the past week. All the junior golfers who took part were congratulated on the standard of play over the two days.
