After shooting +4 over-par on day one, the 16-year old rallied on day two to make the cut with his best round of the tournament shooting just +1 over-par (73). Jarvis followed with a round three 77 (+5) and a final round 80 (+8).
In his fourth appearance, 2018 Cayman Islands Golf Association (CIGA) national champion Payten Wight missed the cut after shooting an opening day 81 (+9) and a round two 77 (+5).
Mexico’s Alvaro Ortiz shot -14 under-par (276) to win both the tournament and entry into the 2019 PGA Masters.
