Top 20 finish for Dillas in Florida

Jarryd Dillas earned a top-20 finish at the St Augustine Amateur in Elkton, Florida, over the weekend.

Playing on the 6,552-yard, par-70, St Johns Golf Club course, Dillas returned scores of 74, 70, 72, to place third in the mid-amateur division, and 20th overall.

“Generally, I was pleased with my performance,” said Dillas. “I've been working hard on improving my short game in recent weeks and things are slowly coming together.

“I also need to address my par-three scoring, I finished six-over for the tournament but I was actually seven-over on the par-threes, so that's another area that I'll be focusing on in my practice.”

Andreas Halvorsen from Norway fired rounds of 69, 67, 69 to claim victory by three shots over a trio of players, one of whom, Grayson Murray, qualified for the 2013 US Open Championship which was won by recent Bermuda visitor and PGA Grand Slam participant, Justin Rose.

Dillas will next be in action in the 2013 Bermuda Amateur Four Ball Championships where he will go in search of a third successive victory in the event, and fifth win overall, having lifted the trophy alongside Nick Mansell for the past two years.

He has previously won with Robert Vallis ('09) and David Smith ('02).

The 54-hole better-ball event for teams of two will be held at the Port Royal Golf Course from November 8 to 10, and has historically been one of the more popular events on the local golf calendar.

Mansell has recently relocated to the US so this year will see Dillas partner with newly crowned Bermuda Amateur Stroke Play champion, Will Haddrell.

The two shared success with the men's team at this summer's NatWest Island Games, with Haddrell captaining the winning quartet of Dillas, Mark Phillips, Jevon Roberts, and Mitchell Campbell.
