FLASHBACK: Golf men on par …but work to be done with ladies.

FLASHBACK: Trinidad and Tobago’s Ryan Peters, left, Dominican Republic’s Rhadames Pena, centre, and Holly McLean show off their silverware after topping the field in the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships at the Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort in Lowlands, Tobago, last month. Peters and Pena were tied for first place among the men, while McLean finished as the top female golfer in the competition

TRINIDAD AND TOBAGO Golf Association (TTGA) president Wayne Baptiste hailed the performance of the men’s team at the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships, where they placed second behind perennial rivals Puerto Rico last month.

But he acknowledged the women’s game in this country has a long road to travel to be able to compete with the top regional teams.

In the aftermath of the tournament that was staged at the Lowlands, Plantation Golf Course in Tobago, Baptiste, also the vice-president of the Caribbean Amateur Golf Association (CAGA), said: “The men’s team performed extremely well. The Trinidad and Tobago Golf Association (TTGA) and the golf community are really satisfied with our men’s team because they placed second and one of our players, Ryan Peters, tied for the lowest round of the tournament.”
