The second day of the 2015 Caribbean Amateur Junior Championships was another day of mixed results and more disqualifications.
In the Boys 11-13, Xzavier Wiggins had a good round and posted an 80 that leaves him third in the table, 5 shots after 2nd place. There is not much Xzavier can do about Andres Aranguren from Puerto Rico who has posted two excellent 73 and is now clear at the top. Oaziah Layne didn't manage to improve on his 88 from the first day. He came in with an 99 and are now drifting down in the table.
Iz Hustler continues to play well in the Boys 15 & under. Iz followed up his first day 79 with an 83 that leaves him 3rd in the table just 2 shots from 2nd place. Melvin Morales from Puerto Rico is the leader with 2 rounds of 74. Christian Mason has not managed to get his game together so far and are currently in the bottom half of the table.
Joshua Jones is the only remaining player from Barbados in the Boys 17 & under. Joshua came in with an 87 that saw him drifting down to the middle of the table. A good score on the final day might see him move up though as 3rd place is only 8 shots away. Chris Cobley and Spence Smith was both disqualified but so far we have no reports on the resins for this.
Emily Odwin posted a wrong score on the 1st day and was disqualified in the Girls 11-13. However even though she's disqualified from the tournament she's still allowed to play and her 94 on the second day was the third best score in her division. Eryn Blakeley have posted 117 and 116 and is picking up tournament experience every day.
The same goes for Alyssa Inniss Gittens in the Girls 15 & under. She improved her first day 102 with an 99 on the second day. With 2 tournament days of experience maybe we'll see an even better score on the final day?
Barbados is currently laying 6 out of 9 teams in the team competition "The Hank James Trophy".
