Golfers shoot for top honours at junior amateur championships

Brothers Andrew and Aaron Jarvis were neck-and-neck down the stretch but Andrew was able to hold off his charging sibling and claim the title at the 2016 Cayman Islands Golf Association Junior Amateur Championships.

Playing in the Blue Tees division — the furthest tee box — Andrew Jarvis followed up an even-par 71 performance on day one by shooting a 1-under-par 70 on the second day.

He edged Aaron Jarvis by five strokes in the end.

“I was really happy,” Andrew Jarvis said. “I was happy with the way I played yesterday as well, so I knew I could capitalise on that. I’m pleased I did. I played really well today.”

Holly McLean claimed the ladies’ Red Tees title. She shot 85 on both days to finish at 170, 50 strokes better than her nearest competitor.

“I was really happy but I was really glad because I think I had good sportsmanship as well and I think I controlled my emotions,” she said.

In the under-10 division, which played only nine holes, Danny Lyne won the title by shooting 38 on his way in.

“I was very happy because that was one of the best scores I ever shot,” he said.
