All Set For 2012 Ja Open Golf

 
With less than a week to go before the start of the 2012 Jamaica Open Golf Championship, the tournament organisers have confirmed an impressive line-up of local and international players.

This year's field includes 2011 Senior US Open Champion Olin Browne and 2011 Senior British Open Champion and defending Jamaica Open Champion Russ Cochran.

Champions Tour senior player, Jim Thorpe, will be back this year and will host the junior golf clinic on Wednesday, November 28. Gary Hallberg, who finished second in the 2012 Senior US Open, brings an impressive résumé to the tournament. Hallberg has had three PGA Tour wins and one Champions Tour win and has finished in the top 10 on both tours more than 50 times in his career. Hallberg, Browne and Cochran all finished in the top 30 in the Champions Tour rankings this year.

The tournament will feature the usual Pro-Am on November 28. Twenty corporate teams will compete and local amateurs will have the rare opportunity to play alongside the professionals and see how they measure up.
