The 2014 World Amateur Team Championships concluded in Karuizawa, Japan, with Bermuda represented by the team of Jarryd Dillas, Will Haddrell and Mark Phillips accompanied by non-playing captain Chris Brough finishing 45th overall at 4-Over Par.

Captain Brough said, “The players all feel that they played better than their score reflects today but couldn’t make the putts when they mattered.

“I think that with some time to reflect on the week the players will be pleased with what they have accomplished this week – scoring what we believe to be the best score in relation to par by a Bermuda team at a WATC. While it is clear there is a way to go before Bermuda is challenging to win this event, we all feel that we can be competitive at this event..”

Dillas ended the event T96th after shooting a Final Round 2-Over Par 74 and is at 1-over Par Overall, while Haddrell ended T128th after shooting 2-Over Par 74 to finish at 9-Over Par, Phillips shot a Final round of 2-Over Par 74 and finished T139th.

Dillas’ round consist of 2 Birdies, 12 Pars, and 4 Bogey’s, while Haddell’s round consist 3 Birdies, 10 Pars and 5 Bogey’s and Phillips’ round consist of 3 Birdies, 10 Pars and 5 Bogey’s.

Haddrell said, “I had a frustrating week. I played very well at times but didn’t capitalize by making putts when I needed to. I enjoyed the week and look forward to working on my game to further improve.”

Dillas commented, “A week that began with so much promise has ended on a rather sour note. We’re not that far off being competitive at this level, but we’ve really got to improve the way we finish our rounds.

“I’ve enjoyed playing with Will and Mark, and I’d like to thank Chris for captaining us this week. I’d also like to give a special thanks to Ironshore and Puma for their support of our team this year. We’ll be back in two years’ time in Mexico looking to improve on this result.”

Phillips said, “I putted really poorly which was frustrating. I struck the ball much better today than the past two days but just couldn’t get my putter going to make enough Birdies.”
