As I start to get ready to go back on the Champions Tour next year I am looking forward to this opportunity to continue working on my short game. I am looking forward to a great week in Bermuda.”

Past champions of the Grey Goose® World Par 3 Championship include Bermudian Daniel Augustus, PGA Tour winner Nick Taylor, PGA of Canada member Ian Doig, American Jordan Mitchell, Mark Mouland of the European Senior Tour and last year’s winner Rafael Becker.

The Grey Goose® World Par 3 Championship, as well as the Bacardi National Par 3 Championship, are both integral to Fairmont Southampton’s strategic golf plan, which aims to drive golfers to Bermuda’s shores.

Both golf tournaments will benefit the Bermuda Sea Turtle Project, the official charity partner of the Turtle Hill Golf Club. The Turtle Hill Golf Club has been recognized by Golf Magazine as one of the “Top 5 Par 3 Courses in the World” and is a recipient of Golf Digest’s “Best Places to Play Golf Award.”
