BARBADOS players James Johnson and Scott Stollmeyer are among 108 players from the hemisphere teeing off today in the 2016 Latin America Amateur Golf Championship (LAAC) in the Dominican Republic.
The championship, the winner of which will be invited to play in the 2016 Masters, runs until Sunday and is being played at the internationally acclaimed Teeth-Of-The -Dog course at Casa de Campo.
One hundred and eight golfers from 27 countries are contesting the second edition of the championship, over 72-holes of stroke play. They qualified to compete, based on their international amateur rankings.
“We are proud that Barbados is being represented in this tournament again this year and it is a great opportunity for exposure to a higher level of competition for all the Caribbean players. This kind of tournament also gives our young Barbados players something to aim for and will be an incentive to them to improve their game and improve their world rankings,” said Cally Boyea, president of the Barbados Golf Association.
