The 1st round of the Bermuda Four-Ball Championships was played at Port Royal Golf Course today with benign conditions at the start and increasing winds throughout the round… a taste of what can be expected tomorrow!
Organizers stated, “Round 2 is scheduled to get underway at 7.30am tomorrow morning, but with winds forecast to be as high as 50 knots, it is questionable whether the 2nd round will be completed. A decision will be made early tomorrow morning and in the event that it is not possible to complete the 2nd round, the result will be based on the Round 1 final results.”
Despite the tough conditions, the Men’s Defending Champions Jarryd Dillas and Damian Palanyandi managed a best ball 2-under par score of 69 with Fraser Hunt and Spencer Wideman two shots back at even par 71.
The defending Ladies Champions, Katrin Burnie and Linda Down also managed a two stroke lead, with a gross score of 74 ahead of Ann Symonds and Tracy Burgess.
In the Senior Men’s Division, the team of Craig Christensen and Luis Gerardo are holding a fairly convincing lead after shooting a 7-over par 78 round to take an 8 shot lead over the 2nd place contenders, Alexander White and Alistair Smith.
