The fourth round of the Digicel Junior Golf Series was held at North Sound Golf Club on Sunday, 18 February. Eighteen junior golfers competed in five categories, earning awards for their performance on the day and accumulating points towards the overall series championship.

The senior boys played 18 holes from the white tees with Justin Hastings taking the lead with a 76, followed by Joe Purton and Joe Ribbins.  Justin’s win follows an impressive 77 on the previous day in the men’s qualifiers from the black tees. Aaron Jarvis missed round four to compete at the Future Collegians World Tour (FCWT) tournament at Sandpiper Golf Course in Santa Barbara, California.

In the junior boys’ 18-hole division, Andy Hastings and Todd Purton both shot 79 from the reds, with the win awarded to Andy on a count-back. James Bould and Tom Dickens followed closely in this competitive division, both scoring 85.

Highlighting the continued development of junior golf in Cayman, the boy’s 9-hole division had eight players contending for points in the series.  On Sunday, Danny Lyne took top honours with a 38, followed by Ben Croucher and Sam McLean, who both shot 43. Following very closely behind this group were Zach Brooks, Cian Anderson, Luca Ballentyne, Josh Dickens and Zachary Garnett.

The girls’ golf program at North Sound also continues to grow. Holly McLean earned the top spot for the 18-hole girls with an 87, followed by Lauren Needham who shot a personal best, 97, on Sunday. Lily Marsh topped the girls 9-hole division.

The fifth of six rounds in the Digicel series will take place on Sunday, 19 March, North Sound Golf Club.
