Division I universities to sign a pair of Cayman golfers

Both Aaron Jarvis, 17, and Justin Hastings, 16, has committed to play university golf at the highest level in the United States for the 2021/2022 school year.

Jarvis will be looking to attend the University of Nevada in Las Vegas, while Hastings will clock in at San Diego State University (SDSU). Both universities are apart of the Mountain West Conference, meaning Jarvis and Hastings will be scheduled to take a crack against one another throughout the season.

Jarvis has had a busy 2020 season despite the COVID-19 pandemic, finishing T11 at the 42nd Junior North & South Amateur Championship in July. He also tied for 25th at The Junior Orange Bowl International Golf Championship and won the boys overall division at the South Florida Junior Open.

In a recent interview with the Cayman Compass, Jarvis said he is excited for the next phase in his golfing career. “It means a lot,” said Jarvis. “Just another step in the journey. It’s gonna be a fun one.”

On the other hand, Hastings, the youngest golfer in history to have ever compete at the Latin America championships visited SDSU during winter last year and gave his verbal commitment to the school at the start of this year (2020).

“The process was a long and difficult one,” Hastings sent via WhatsApp. “I had spoken to many schools in the last year; all with good things to offer which made the choice difficult but I’m super excited and confident in my decision to commit to SDSU.”
