Bajan golfers impress
BARBADOS’ PLAYERS Iz Hustler and Xzavier Wiggins copped second and third places among some of the region’s best junior golfers during the recent Caribbean Junior Open in Trinidad.
In the April 8-10 tournament at the St. Andrews Club at Maraval, Hustler finished second to Trinidadian Ryan Peters in the boys’ 14-15 age group, with a gross 234 while the winner shot 228. Third was Johnathan Jean-Noel of Guadeloupe with 240.
Wiggins, playing in the 11-13 division, shot a gross 245 over the three days and was third behind winner Andres Aranguren of Puerto Rico (216) and second-placed Pierre Garcia from Guadeloupe (233).
The Barbados Golf Association sent a four-member team to the tournament chosen from players in the BGA’s junior development programme. The two other Barbados players were Christian Mason and Joshua Jones, who finished in mid-table.
