Jonathan Newnham has been selected to head a Jamaica squad to the 60th Caribbean Amateur Golf Championships to be held in Nassau, Bahamas from July 24-30.

The team is comprised of Jamaica's best golfers, who vied for and claimed their spaces after intense competition in the National Trials held from June 2 5 at the Cinnamon Hill Golf Club.

Newnham is joined by Ian Facey, William Knibbs, O'Shae Haye, Sean Morris and Zandre Roye in the 2016 Hoerman Cup team.

Haye and Roye are protegees of the Sandals Development Foundation and have represented Jamaica several times on the national junior team. Newnham, Facey and Knibbs are familiar faces and Morris is a seasoned veteran on the side. The reserve is Rodean Minto.

The ladies competing for the George Teale Trophy team are Madelyn Piccininni, Jodi Barrow, Kei Harris and Tiana Cruz. This year will be Piccininni's second appearance on the Jamaican team. Barrow is a stalwart and long-time athlete, having played for Jamaica since childhood, while Harris and Cruz are experienced junior national representatives who are making their second appearance on the senior team.

Robert Chin has been appointed the team manager.
