Bobby Edghill, The Barbados National Junior Coach reports on the preparation for the 27th Caribbean Amateur Junior Golf Championships in Puerto Rico at the Trump International Golf Club. July 27 to August 1, 2014.
The Barbados National Junior team has been practicing three times at Barbados Golf Club. Since starting these sessions we have seen significant improvement, especially with the new members of the team.
Looking forward to Puerto Rico our strongest category is expected to be the 11-13 boys with Iz Hustler and Xzavier Wiggins, both finished top 5 at the Trinidad Junior Open and also had a close battle in our junior trials.
The newcomers Joshua Jones and Christian Mason have worked hard on their game and have seen their scores come down in practice so we are very hopeful of a solid performance from them.
The anchors of the team are Chris Cobley and our captain Spencer Smith. Chris is a tough competitor which will no doubt serve him well over the three days. Finally Spencer has shown great leadership throughout our preparation and has led the team by example. Always giving his best and showing full commitment to his game and the team.
With a mix of experience and good talent the players and I are looking forward to test our game against the best juniors in the Caribbean.
All the best
Bobby Edghill - Junior Coach
