Provid-19 claim top honours
The ProVid-19 team of Craig Brown, Colin Brown, Matthew Durrant and Shaun Green were crowned the BGA Team Challenge champions in the season-opening Bermuda Golf Association tournament at Port Royal on Saturday.
Despite initial concerns about Hurricane Teddy, which caused two teams to withdraw, the tournament went ahead under ideal conditions with 16 teams of four players using the Stableford scoring system with two balls to count.
The winning team accumulated 87 points to win by one point over the Port Royal A team of Ian Page, Franklyn Furbert, Jerome Bradshaw and Alexander White.
The winners also had two low scores with Matthew Durrant shooting a two-over par 73 and Craig Brown a 74. Both players are contenders for the Bermuda Championship qualifier in October.
There was some impressive scoring during the tournament with the low score of the day recorded by Jerome Bradshaw with a two-under par round of 69. Eric West shot an even par round of 71.
