Guyanese Karl Ramjeet recently turned in an impressive round of golf to record his first tour win at the New York Metro season opener at the Long island National Golf Club Course.
Ramjeet with 75 points had the lowest score of the day from the back fees at LI National, and, according to the Golf Bulletin, the impressive round earned him the first place Trophy and a gold coin.
Ever since Tiger Woods and Vijay Singh came to the scene a large number of West Indians participate in the game in the United States.
There are a few Caribbean players who are emerging as good players in the United States.
Several of them were among the 220 golfers who took part in the two-day tournament, one of which Guyanese Mark Woseley with 87 points also won a trophy and a gold coin.
"Mark Woseley continues to improve his game," said the Golf Bulletin.
Trinidadians Roland Ketwaroo and Hafeez Khan also performed well in the tournament and won prizes in the annual competition.
