Silvermine Country Club led from wire to wire to clinch the 67th Bermuda Goodwill Tournament that concluded at Tucker’s Point Club on Wednesday.

The team from Norwalk, Connecticut laid down a marker after an opening round 12-under-par, 59 at Mid Ocean Club on Monday left them four-shots clear of nearest rival Innis Arden Golf Club atop the leaderboard.

A nine-under-par, 62 in second round played at Port Royal the following day kept Silvermine’s title bid firmly on track before a 12-under-par, 58 sealed the deal in the final round at Tucker’s Point.

The winners finished the best ball event with a three-round accumulative net score of 179. Innis Arden Golf Club finished second with a score of 185 and Trump National Briarcliff third with 187.

Guiding Silvermine to what proved to be a comfortable victory in the end was Peter Ballo who won the individual professional Stableford title with 68 points.

Brian Gaffney, representing Essex Fells Country Club, finished second with 54 points and Chris Marinaro, of Trump National Briarcliff, third with 52 points.

There were no local players or teams that competed in this year’s event featuring 27 teams from North America and Europe.

Introduced in 1953, the Goodwill Tournament has become a staple of Bermuda’s golf calendar attracting overseas amateurs and professionals to the island annually.
