SANDALS-SPONSORED golfer Wesley Brown presented a cheque for $50,000 to Sandals CEO and President of the Sandals Foundation Adam Stewart at Eden Gardens Wellness Resort and Spa in Kingston last week Tuesday. The cheque represents a portion of his earnings throughout a largely successful 2013 campaign.

"I got my start through Sandals and the Sandals Foundation and I can never forget what they've done for me. I know this is just a small gesture, but it comes from a big place in my heart," said Brown.

Sandals chose to sponsor the young caddy from the Sandals Golf and Country Club in Ocho Rios after witnessing his tremendous growth in a very short period of time.

"Wesley is pure talent and a real class act," said Dave Reid, the resident golf professional at the club who has been Wesley's mentor.

"With Sandals' help we have been able to achieve so much and I think the PGA Tour is just a few swings away."

Last year, Brown flew to the United States to participate in the National Golf Association Pro Tour in North Carolina where he had some excellent outings, including a best fifth-place finish and three top-10 finishes.

In 2014 Brown will once again be participating in a series of North American tournaments with hopes of landing a spot on the PGA Tour. The Sandals Foundation is Sandals Resorts International's non-profit arm and is mandated with the enrichment of the Caribbean region's people and environment through sustainable developmental programmes.
