PGA Tour Bermuda Championships Continues

November 2, 2019

American Brendon Todd moved to a three-way tie top of the Bermuda Championship by shooting an eight under par in the second round at Port Royal Golf Course. The Pittsburgh native is now -11 after two rounds tied with first-day leader Scottie Scheffler and Harry Higgs.

Todd had eight birdies yesterday, including a run of four-in-a-row.

Scheffler broke the course record in the first round with a nine-under par, a feat Todd almost repeated. Higgs has been steady with a five under for the first round and six under for the second.

It’s very tight at the top as another three players, Boo Weekly, Aaron Wise, and Wes Roach are just a stroke back.

Weekly is seeking his first victory since the 2013 Chalres Schwab Challenge – a span that includes 126 starts, counting this week.

Wise had a wild ride moving into the tie for fourth with an eagle, six birdies, and two bogeys.

The field was cut in half yesterday as players needed to be at two under par to be in the top half. Michael Sims was the closest Bermudian to doing as he was even par after two days of shooting 70, then 72.

Daniel Augustus was +5, Jarryd Dillas +7, Kenny Leseur +10 and Dwayne Pearman +17. Dillas and Leseur were the only amateurs in the field, with the 15-year-old Leseur being the youngest in the field.

The second most difficult hole of the day yesterday is the iconic 16th hole. The challenging par-3 saw the pros average 3.225 on it. The most difficult hole was the par-3 8th.

So far the par-5 7th has been the easiest hole for both the first and second round.

    Serious golfers know there is a distinct difference between the PGA Tour events and the PGA of America events and the caliber of player in the different events. The golfers who made the cut and are playing this last round of this PGA Tour event are not names readily associated with golf, most are good golfers but not consistently. Bottom line is the Bermuda Tour Championship won’t attract the top players, we recognize by name, or the major TV networks. The PGA Tour Bermuda event should provide good golf for locals but won’t be an attraction that gets golfers in US and Canada to book a Bermuda trip to follow the golfers around Port Royal. Fewer young people are taking an interest in golf.
    The PGA of America Grand Slam had negative ROI in the millions and the PGA Tour Bermuda event will be lucky if it breaks even.
