Title delight: Jevon Roberts, who claimed the Bermuda Match Play Championships men's title after beating Matt Gorrell
Katrin Burnie, who claimed the Bermuda Match Play Championships women’s title after beating Linda Down

Jevon Roberts and Katrin Burnie were crowned champions at the conclusion of the Bermuda Match Play Championships at Port Royal Golf Course yesterday.

Roberts scooped the men’s championship title after overcoming Matt Gorrell by one hole in the final.

The match was all square after 16 holes, with Roberts going one up on the 17th with a par. Despite a wayward tee shot and approach shot over the back of the green on the 18th hole, he showed his pedigree with an impressive flop shot, followed by 20-foot putt for par to take the title.

Gorrell had started the day by overcoming brother Bryce in the first of the semi-finals after the latter had shocked defending champion Jarryd Dillas a day earlier. Dillas had a huge four-hole lead late the match but squandered it and lost on the 19th.

Meanwhile, Roberts completed his route to the final by beating Bermuda Stroke Play champion Eric West, en route to ultimately be crowned champion.

In the Women’s Championship, Burnie clinched her berth in the final after beating Tracy Burgess, while Linda Down overcame Ann Symonds.

In the final, it was Burnie who took the title 3 and 2.

There was a similar scenario in the Senior Men’s Championship where Ian Page prevailed 3 and 2 against Zane DeSilva, a shock winner over top qualifier Barry Brewer on Saturday.
