Bermudian professional Daniel Augustus is on a roll after he blazed his way to a fifth win of the year and eighth overall on the Moonlight Golf Tour in Orlando, Florida, this week.

He carded a four-under 68 to edge Joshua Seale, of Uganda, by one shot in the 18-hole event at the Black Bear Golf Club on Thursday.

American Cyril Suk finished at two-under 70 to round off the top three.

The win was a second straight on the tour in a week for Augustus, who grappled with jet lag throughout his stroll around the par-72 layout, having arrived from competing at the Advocates Professional Golf Association Tour Farmers Insurance Fall Series Finale at the Wilshire Country Club in Los Angeles the day before.

“I wasn’t expecting to win,” he told The Royal Gazette. “I flew back Wednesday still a little jet-lagged and played the Moonlight at Black Bear.”

“I was feeling a little tired from travelling the past couple of days to LA, but it worked out all right.”

The 34-year-old’s outstanding round included five birdies and a sole bogey at the par-three 15th.

“Obviously I’m happy with the direction that my game is going and everything, but I still have some work to do,” Augustus added.

“I’m not there yet and I’m just going to keep on plugging away until I do get there.”

The former Bermuda Open winner had momentum going into the tournament, having finished tied first at six under in his previous appearance on the Moonlight tour at the Eagle Dunes Golf Club in Sorrento, Florida, seven days earlier.

That was followed by a solid fourth place showing at the 36-hole APGA Tour event in Los Angeles, which he finished at one over, after carding rounds of 74 and 69 respectively.

“That was a good little course and they actually have an LPGA Tour event there,” Augustus said.

“It’s tight; you have to keep the ball in front of you and have to leave the ball below the hole because the greens are fast.”
