Steady Dwayne Pearman wins BPGA stroke play by two strokes
Dwayne Pearman saved the best for last when he used his experience to shoot a steady one-under-par 69 to win the three-day Bermuda Professional Golfers Association stroke play tournament by two strokes yesterday at Tucker’s Point.
Pearman, tied with Chaka DeSilva after two rounds, matched DeSilva’s score the day before to finish with a three-round total of 210 and pick up a winner’ cheque of $1,080.
DeSilva finished two strokes behind on 212 to pick up $850 after shooting a final round of 71.
Scott Roy, the other player in contention for the title on the last day, could only manage a 76 to go with two rounds of 71 as he finished on 218, eight strokes behind Pearman. He was presented a cheque of $650.
Andrew Trott finished fourth after a final round of 71 for a three-round total of 219. He was able to move ahead of OJ Pitcher, who had his worst round, 78, to finish sixth, with Trott’s top-four finish earning him $300.
Derrick Douglas also finished ahead of Pitcher after he also carded a 71 to finish on 220 and seal a place in the top five.
