When Evan Harmeling wakes up Sunday morning, he will walk to the 17th-green fringe and play his third shot, a look at eagle. He will finish that hole, play No. 18 and then have a long wait until the start of his fourth round. That’s when he’ll see if he can win the BMW Jamaica Classic. 

Some amazing golf at the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course has left the Caribbean’s best outside of the cut for the final two days of play at the BMW Jamaica Classic in Montego Bay. 

Talin Rajendranath, the Caribbean’s highest finishing player on day one of the BMW Jamaica Classic, believes conditions were ideal for good golf on day one of the tournament.

The Trinidad and Tobago native, who turned pro last October, finished with 70, five strokes behind the day one leaders Tom Whitney, Hunter Hamrick and Stephen Thomas who were tied for the lead. 

Rajendranath had somewhat of a slow start on the back nine but picked up momentum on the front, which he hopes to take into tomorrow.  On the back nine he bogeyed the 13th and 14th holes, scoring a birdie and the 11th and 17th.  He shot birdies on the third, 5th on 6th holes on the front nine but registered a bogey on the 7th.

“It’s been good.  I struggled on the backend a little bit but I came back nicely on the front.  Even par on the back got some three birdies on the front,” Rajendranath told SportsMax.tv.

   “Unfortunately, I made a bogey coming in but really good conditions out there, I love the course and I look forward to tomorrow.”

 

Top-ranked Tom Whitney was off to a fast start on the opening day of the BMW Jamaica Classic PGA but settled for a share of the lead in a three-way tie with Stephen Thomas and Hunter Hamrick, at the par-72 Cinnamon Hill Golf Course on Thursday. 

The BMW Jamaica Classic, the only stop of the PGA Latinoamerica tour in the Caribbean has, for the third time in as many starts, attracted massive names, guaranteeing wonderful golf at the Cinnamon Hill Golf Course in Montego Bay comes Thursday, May 16.
