Three junior golfers make the cut

13 year-old Justin Hastings won the Cayman Islands Amateur Championships this year.

The Cayman Islands Golf Association (CIGA) has named its team for the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships to be held in the Dominican Republic in July. Among them are three juniors – Justin Hastings, Andrew Jarvis and Aaron Jarvis.

The championships being played at the Casa De Campo resort is the premier regional event and brings together the top amateur golfers in the region who compete over four rounds for the Hoerman Cup.

Justin Hastings, 13, is the current Cayman Islands Amateur Champion. He secured his spot with his win in March and is also on the junior team.

Andrew Jarvis, 18, is on both the Junior and Senior Cayman teams this year and has represented his country in numerous international events including the Latin American and World event.

Aaron Jarvis, 14, (Andrew’s brother) who is also on the junior team, made the senior squad for the first time this year. Aaron won his age division at the Caribbean Juniors in 2016.

The Jarvis brothers, along with other members of the team, won their places as a result of their scores in the six-round qualifying series.

Brian Ross, placed first in qualifying and was the top ranked Cayman player in the last two Championships.

The father and son duo of Michael and Payten Wight have also made the cut. They have represented Cayman at numerous top ranking international tournaments, including the Latin American and Caribbean Amateur Championships, and World Amateur Team Championships.

The team will benefit from the advice and assistance of PGA Professional Erick Fowler, Director of Golf at the North Sound Golf club, who has been appointed as team coach and who will be working with the team both before and at the event.
