JAMAICA'S NATIONAL golf team secured the overall Ambrose Gouthro Cup at the recently-concluded Caribbean Golf Association Four-Ball Championship, which was held in Florida.

,The Jamaica team amassed 51 points over the three rounds to take the top spot behind the Bahamas who finished in second place with 31 points, followed by the Cayman Islands with 21 points.

Trinidad and Tobago came in fourth with 19 points, followed by Puerto Rico with 10 points and the Turks and Caicos sixth with four points.

The Jamaica team secured the Ramon Baez Ramano Mid-Amateurs Trophy, along with the Francis Steele Perkins Cup for Seniors, the Maria Nunes Trophy for ladies and the Dessie Henry Trophy for senior ladies.

President of the Jamaica Golf Association, Jodi Munn-Barrow, who also took part in the tournament, says the win for Jamaica symbolises a resurgence for the country on the international scene, following their second place finish at the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championship recently.

“I am extremely proud of the Jamaica team. To come out on top in four of the five categories is an overwhelming achievement. The team spirit and camaraderie and the dedication of our coach Jonathan Newnham helped us to come past the post,” said Barrow.
