Campbell claims match play title

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Walker Campbell finished his Bermuda Amateur Match Play Championships just as he started it — in front.

Campbell, the top seed, beat Jevon Roberts 5 and 4 in the Men's Championship 36-hole final on Saturday at Mid Ocean Club, a match he never looked like losing.

Up by five holes at the half way stage, Campbell was pegged back a couple of times by Roberts, but kept his composure to eventually win quite comfortably.

Ebonie Burgess, the women's defending champion, was pushed slightly harder in the defence of her title by Elizabeth Parsons, but opened up a two-hole lead by the turn and eventually won 3 and 2.

Craig Christensen, who beat defending champion Max Atherden in the Senior Men's semi-final on Friday, made that victory count, beating Hav Trott 1-up in Saturday's final. Things were equally close in the Senior Women's final, with Valerie Nearon edging out Carol Jones on the final hole to win 1-up.

Just champion: Campbell hits the ball off the ninth fairway at Mid Ocean Club
Women's champion: Ebonie Burgess
