Lucas Glover among trio confirmed for Butterfield Bermuda Championship
PGA Tour major winner Lucas Glover will be among those battling for honours at this month’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship.
Organisers have announced the former US Open champion is among a trio of players who have already committed to the 72-hole championship to be held at Port Royal Golf Course from October 27 to 30.
The 42-year-old American has already enjoyed success at the par-71 Southampton layout having won the former PGA Grand Slam of Golf there in 2011.
As well as winning the 2009 US Open, Glover has three other wins on the PGA Tour with his previous success arriving in last season’s John Deere Classic when he shot a final round 64 to clinch the title.
Glover was scheduled to compete in last year’s Butterfield Bermuda Championship before withdrawing.
Others to have already committed this month’s championship are fellow PGA Tour winners Luke Donald and Séamus Power.
Englishman Donald is the European Ryder Cup captain and a five-times PGA Tour winner.
He is also a former world No 1 who was both PGA Tour Player of the Year and leading money winner in 2011.
The 44-year-old was also the European Tour Golfer and Players’ Player of the Year the same year.
Donald, who was appointed to the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire in 2012, is making his third successive appearance in the event.
Irishman Power, who captured a maiden PGA Tour win at the 2021 Barbasol Championship, has played in every Butterfield Bermuda Championship and finished twelfth last year.
“We are excited about how the player line-up is coming together and look forward to welcoming all players to Bermuda for the Butterfield Bermuda Championship,” Tracy Berkeley, the interim Bermuda Tourism Authority chief executive officer, said.
“Bermuda and golf have a long, rich history, and there’s no better place to witness some of the best players in the world compete.”
PGA Tour players have until October 21 to enter or withdraw from the field.
