Bermuda to be represented at World Seniors Golf Championships
Bermuda will be keen to build on their past success competing at the 2022 World Seniors Golf Championships in Napa, California, starting today.
The island’s team of Max Abend, Ed Faries, Jim Ferguson, Vincent Frith and Geza Wolf came up just shy of retaining their low net title after finishing runners-up to Uruguay last year.
Bermuda will again be led by seasoned campaigner Abend at the World Senior Golf Federation event this year.
“Max has a history of over 20 years of playing in this event,” Ferguson told The Royal Gazette.
“The players attending this year have all had experience playing in this event. All play three to four times per week at various clubs, and are all members of the Bermuda Senior Golfers’ Society.”
The one change from last year is Howard DeSilva replacing Ferguson.
“Howard DeSilva, at the age of 91, is joining the Bermuda team this year after missing last year’s tournament,” Abend said. “Howard has an attendance record of over 25 years.”
Ferguson added: “Howard DeSilva resides in the United States and has won many trophies over his many years of playing in this World Seniors Championship.”
More than 120 golfers from 20 countries are taking part in the invitational event to be held at the Silverado Resort up to September 2.
The championships features both team and matchplay formats.
