Golf: Campbell & Burgess Win Match Play Titles

March 9, 2015

Walker Campbell and Ebonie Burgess are the 2015 Bermuda Amateur Match Play Champions after play concluded at the Mid Ocean Golf Course.

The final matches of the Bermuda Match Play Championships concluded this weekend in some challenging conditions at the Mid Ocean Club. The Men & Ladies championship flights went out early in the morning as they were playing a 36 hole final.

The Ladies match between Burgess and Elizabeth Parsons started in light drizzle with a strong westerly wind. Shortly after they teed off, the drizzle turned into heavy showers which caused flooding on the greens.

The Men’s match between Campbell and Jevon Roberts was delayed for about 30 minutes while the grounds crew were summoned to squeegee the water off the greens. The weather finally cleared and enabled the matches to be finished.

Walker defeated Jevon Roberts in their 36 hole play-off 5 and 4, Campbell was up 5 after the first 18 holes. Burgess defeated Elizabeth Parsons 3 & 2, the pair battled down to the wire with Burgess holding a 2 hole lead after 18.
