A top 10 placing is a remarkable finish at one of the largest and best-known junior golf tournaments in the world.

This wraps up a solid month of golf for Jarvis, who was third among 18 and Under Boys at the Caribbean Amateur Junior Golf Championships that concluded in Bahamas a few days before. Earlier in the month, he was part of the men’s team that finished third at the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships in the Dominican Republic.
