Trinidad and Tobago placed third in the 27th edition of the Caribbean Amateur Junior Golf Championships, presented by the Puerto Rico Tourism Company, which concluded recently. The hosts Puerto Rico secured their seventh straight title at  the Sugarcane Course, with arch rivals Dominican Republic second in the overall standings.

Conducted by the Caribbean Golf Association and hosted by the PRGA at Dorado Beach Resort & Golf Club, the 54-hole event showcased the participation of a total of eight teams, six of those with a full delegation of 14 golfers divided by age groups at the male and female divisions.

Puerto Rico earned the first place as Best Team Overall with a total of 161 points. Out of their team total, 55 points were added on the final day when a total of four out of the six categories earned the maximum ten points.  

In second place finished the Dominican Republic with 136 points and a strong finish by two of the players at the Boys 17& U level. The team from T&T secured third place with 121 points, followed by Bahamas (92), Jamaica (69) and the USVI (61).
