Eighteen golfers will begin their bid to claim one of the three qualifying spots for the upcoming Bermuda Championships when they take part in two rounds of qualifying today and tomorrow at Port Royal.

The Bermuda Golf Association and the Bermuda Professional Golfers Association will host the event starting at 10.10am each day.
