Visiting professional Chris Gabriele fires hole in one at Bermuda Goodwill Championships
Chris Gabriele from Sleepy Hollow Golf Club in New York scored a hole in one at Port Royal Golf Course on the second day of the Bermuda Goodwill Golf Championships.
Established in 1953, the Bermuda Goodwill is believed to be the oldest running pro-am tournament in the world and attracts teams from around the world, with a contingent from St Andrew’s in Scotland competing this year.
Teams are made up of one club professional and three amateurs with the tournament consisting of 54 holes with teams playing on three different days at Mid Ocean Golf Club, Belmont Hills and Port Royal Golf course.
Gabriele’s hole in one came at the third hole at Port Royal and overshadowed the traditional spot-prize winners Mike Zelina of Greenwich Golf Club, who won the longest drive competition and the closest to the pin winner Matthew Lewicki of Metedeconk Golf Club.
Spencer Mellon came out on top in the Stableford professional competition with 25 points while the team from Jupiter Country Club in Florida came out on top in the foursomes competition.
At Mid Ocean Golf Club on Tuesday, professional Blake Morris was successful in the Stableford points competition with 20, Scott Justus from Blue Shamrock Golf Club in Pennsylvania won the Longest Drive competition and Ron Marshall from Elm Tree Golf Club in New York finished closest to the pin. Marshall’s team also came out on top in the foursomes competition.
