Golf: Yorkshire PGA Win Against Bermuda PGA

September 27, 2023 | 0 Comments

The Yorkshire PGA Team playing on home soil produced plenty of birdies to amass enough points to win comfortably against the Bermuda PGA Select, whose only winning pair was the team of Jeff Hall and Kim Swan.

Kim Swan stated, “I’m excited that we were able to formally establish this relationship and I am proud of the Bermuda Team for paying their own way to be a part of this historic relationship launch in the name of golf.”

“A huge thank you to Golf Professional Mark Winterburn of Forest Park Golf Club, York, England for hosting the inaugural event and congratulations to Andrew Smith, Secretary of the Yorkshire PGA for working diligently to ensure our shared vision was birthed.”

“The Yorkshire PGA Team were extremely competitive – they produced a lot of birdies on a testy golf course to win the inaugural event.”

“We’ve already received interest from other PGA Regions in the UK as we look to progress this initiative into outreach and relationship building that can benefit Bermuda on many levels.”

Andrew Smith added, “The fellowship exceeded expectations and our pros are already talking about a Bermuda trip. Our golfers travel to places like Egypt, Dubai, Thailand and had no idea that Bermuda was easily accessible within 7 hours. “

Andrew Smith, Secretary PGA in Yorkshire, added, “After meeting the energetic Kim Swan in 2022, communication and ideas have been flowing freely. Yorkshire and Bermuda came together to play our first match on Sunday 24th September at Forest Park GC in York, ending with a win for Yorkshire.

“Professionals in Yorkshire are looking at and now seeing Bermuda as a future destination for their club trips abroad. Yorkshire has 190 golf clubs with an estimated 100,000 golfers, 437 golf professionals. It’s a huge market for Bermuda.”
