It will be a daunting task though as James will be facing professional golfers from golf tours all over the world.
The two highest ranked are Roberto Diaz Gonzalez from Mexico who plays on the PGA Latin America tour, and Camilo Benedetti Ortiz from Columbia who plays on the Web.com tour. There are 9 countries participating – Honduras, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Mexico, Venezuela, Columbia, Guatemala, Barbados and Dominican Republic, the last two being the only two Caribbean countries playing.
The course, Punto Tiburon, is a Greg Norman designed course. It is very demanding, measuring 7357 yards from the black tees. The front nine is characterized by elevations similar to the courses on the West coast courses in Barbados, while the back nine is forged out of marshland which is flat with numerous water hazards on either side of the fairways and strategically cutting across some of them. The 15th features an island green.
The weather forecast for today is expected to be windy.
James is hopeful he can do well despite the fierce competition. Together with manager Denny Foster and also caddy during the tournament he has prepared well in Barbados before the tournament and is right now in his best physical condition ever.
"Top 3 is my target", say James.
We will know how it went on Saturday evening when the tournament is concluded. The BGA website will post results from each day on our website. Check back for daily updates.
