Golfers take bronze
ELVIS MEDFORD AND CARLSEN LEACOCK copped a bronze medal, but the Barbados team found the going tough at the recently concluded 2015 Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
Barbados finished seventh in the overall team standings, with 90 points, while Trinidad and Tobago (134) copped the overall team championship and the Authur Ziadie Trophy ahead of Jamaica (132). Puerto Rico (117) finished third and were followed by the Dominican Republic (113) and US Virgin Islands (110).
Medford and Leacock, who contested the mid-amateurs division, played themselves in line for a podium finish over the four rounds of competition but were pipped by Jamaica, for second position, by one stroke on the last day when they posted a 1-over par 73.
The Dominican Republic took the Ramon Baez Trophy, in the mid-amateurs division, with a score of 287, which was three strokes better than second-placed Jamaica (290) and four better than the Barbadians (291). (BB)
