Stellar performances from Alderray Downes (71) and Talin Rajendranath (71) helped T&T draw level with first day leaders Puerto Rico in the Hoerman Cup on the second day of the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships at the Millennium Lakes Golf Club in Trincity yesterday.

Combined with solid contributions from Andrei Collins (73) and Shane Costelloe (73), the hosts improved 10 strokes on their first day tally of 298 to leave them tied on 586 going into the third day. 

Lead by Erick Morales (67), Puerto Rico matched their day one score of 293 with Robert Calvesbert (74), Christian Rivera (74) and Alfred Colon (78) also chipping in. Barbados trail in third with 603, followed by Dominican Republic (611) and Jamaica (615) respectively.

Meanwhile in the race for the George Teale Memorial Trophy, T&T’s ladies conceded their first day advantage to Puerto Rico, whose Maria Torres (70) and Paola Robles (73) were in top form. With 143 yesterday and 154 on Wednesday, the Puerto Ricans are currently two shots ahead on 297. Locals Monifa Sealy (73) and Tracy Clarke (74) combined to shoot 147 yesterday, which added with T&T’s first-day 152, left them on 299. The Cayman Islands are third on 327 while Barbados (338) and OECS (339) round out the top five.

Michael Commissiong and Carlos “Sexy” Baynes climbed one place to first in the Francis & Steele-Perkins Cup (Men Over 50), finishing on 61 yesterday for a tally of 131. They eclipsed the Barbados pair of Ricardo Skeete and Robert Piggott (67+75).
