Smith, Sims, Phipps qualify for PGA Bermuda Championship
Camiko Smith won the PGA Bermuda Championship local qualifier by five shots at Port Royal Golf Course today.
The overnight leader carded an even-par 71 in the second round to finish the 36-hole championship at one-under-par 141 and clinch his spot in the main event at the second attempt.
"It feels really great to qualify for a PGA Tour event," Smith said. "It took a lot of hard work and practice.
"This means a lot, especially being on my home course."
Michael Sims and Anthony Phipps finished tied for second at four-over 146 to secure the remaining two qualifying spots respectively.
It is the second straight year that Sims has qualified, having competed in the inaugural event last year, when he narrowly missed the cut.
Phipps carded the lowest round today, 70, which included four birdies and three bogeys.
