November 24, 2015

Bermudian Daniel Augustus, the golf pro at Tucker’s Point Club, has been awarded a $16,500 sponsorship to help him progress in the sport of golf.

With this sponsorship, Mr Augustus is being given the chance to pursue his ambitions of joining the Canadian PGA Tour, beginning with trial tournaments in January 2016, followed by ‘Q’ – School in April.

Clement Talbot presented Mr Augustus with a cheque for $16,500, saying: “I am confident that Daniel will be successful in his quest to qualify in the ‘Q’-School trials qualifications for the Canadian PGA Tour in April, 2016 and to be one of the few Bermudian golfers to accomplish this goal.
