It was a memorable day for Camiko Smith who enjoyed a superb finish to his second round in the Butterfield Bermuda Championship at Port Royal Golf Course today.

However, despite firing a bogey-free six-under 29 on the back nine, which is believed to have equalled a tournament record, Smith’s one-under-par 70 was not enough to make the halfway cut.

The local professional finished with a two-day total of 150 to miss the mark, determined at even par, by eight shots.

Michael Sims was also hoping to advance to the final two rounds, having fired a solid 73 yesterday, but had a second round, carding six over.

The former Web.com Tour player’s round included a double bogey, six bogeys and two birdies. Like Smith, he finished eight shots over.

Bermudian amateur Daniel Palanyandi shot identical scores of 76 in both rounds, as he finished ten over, while local pro Chaka DeSilva shot 80 in the second round, having carded 76 yesterday, to finish 14 over.

Rounding out the local contingent, Brian Morris carded 89 and 92 in his two rounds to finish 39 over.

The Ocean View Golf Club head professional, who has brain cancer, received a sponsor’s exemption to realise his dream of playing in a PGA event.

Canadian Taylor Pendrith leads the championship by one shot at the halfway stage after a brilliant ten-under-par 61 in the second round.

Pendrith carded one eagle, nine birdies and one bogey to move to 11 under.

He is closely followed by Patrick Rodgers, of the United States, on ten under after shooting a 64.
