First round of the Junior National Team qualifiers tees off

Cayman’s junior golfers are keeping busy with the competitive season underway. The first round of the RSM Junior National Team qualifiers started on Sunday.

Golfers aged 11 through 17 are set to compete in a series of four 18-hole tournaments to earn qualifying positions on the team that will represent Cayman at the Caribbean Championships in July in Trinidad and Tobago.

Top junior golfer Aaron Jarvis says he wasn’t too happy with his play this weekend.

The boys will play off for spots in the 16-17, 14-15 and 11-13 age groups and the girls are playing for spots in the 11-13 age group.

In the first round, Aaron Jarvis took a significant lead over Derek Peene in the 14-15 category, shooting a remarkable three under par, 68 from the blue tees.

The 11-13 boys will be the most highly contested category in these trials. Justin Hastings commanded the first round with a 72 from the white tees, followed by James Bould (89), Todd Purton (90), Andy Hastings (91), Tom Dickens (92) and James Rees. With only two places open on the team, this will be an exciting group to follow.

In the girls’ division, Holly McLean leads after the first round with an 85 from the red tees, followed by Lauren Needham and Bethany Hawkins.

The four qualifying rounds will be held at the North Sound Golf Club on November 27 and January 14 and at the Ritz-Carlton Golf Club on December 4 and February 12.
