Top Trinidad and Tobago golfer, Sachin Kumar captured the Overall Boys title by one shot, topping the leaderboard at the South Florida PGA (SFPGA) Junior Tour Championship Event #1, presented by The Honda Classic, at Sandpiper Golf Club at Club Med in Port St Lucie, Florida, USA, on the weekend.
The SFPGA Junior Tour is a membership-based tour open to boys and girls ages 11-18 with the aspirations and skill levels to compete at the high school and collegiate level, and features some of South Florida’s most talented junior golfers.
Sixty-four of South Florida’s premier juniors teed it up in the first Championship Tour Event of 2014, and delivered spectacular play.
Kumar struck a 2-under par 68 on the final day of the two-day tournament to claim the Boys Overall 13-18 Division, dethroning defending champion Alberto Martinez, who had set the pace with an opening round 68.
Martinez fired a solid second round 74, but it proved not enough to hold off the charge from Kumar, who had fired a first round of 73. Kumar had a two-day total of 141.
