Hidden Valley and Riverside set for thriller

The fight for the net title in the junior division looks like going down to the wire in the Bermuda Goodwill Pro-Am.

Just one shot separates three teams at the top of the division, with Hidden Valley Golf Club, Port Royal Golf Club and Riverside Country Club all within touching distance of victory.

Port Royal, who are tied for the lead with Hidden Valley at 40-under par, will go into today's final round as slight favourites as they finish their week up with a visit to Riddell's Bay Golf and Country Club, the easiest course on the rotation.

Hidden Valley and Riverside, meanwhile, are both at Tucker's Point Club. Should it be required, a play-off will be held over the first three holes at Riddell's Bay starting at 3.30pm.

Chambersburg Country Club, who are only four shots back, will also fancy their chances, but will need some help from the teams around them.

In the junior professional contest, Zach Johnson of Riverside CC, takes a five-point lead into the final day, after his impressive round of 64 at Tucker's Point yesterday. The 22 Stableford points he scored gave him 61 for the tournament. Tied for second on 56 points are GW King, of The Georgian Bay Club, and Terry Hatch, the professional from Hidden Valley.

In third, a point further back, are James Ondo and Chris Moody.

The race for the senior competition is going to be just as tight, with only two points between the top four teams in the division. Bellewood Golf Club lead the way at 30-under par, with Bedrock Golf Club a shot further back. Apawamis and Riddell's Bay are tied for third on 28-under. Danny Mijovi, of Kings Riding Golf Club, is in the driver's seat in the race for the senior professional prize after his 19 points at Port Royal put him on 57 for the tournament, four ahead of Dave Wettlaufer. Scott Spence, a past winner of the division, Daniel St Louis and Ted Griffin are tied for third place on 51 points.

There is likely to be some excitement in the women's division as well today, with Mid Ocean Club hosting a battle between Hi5 Golf, the leaders on 27-under, Riddell's Bay, who are a shot further back, and St George's Golf Club, who are 24-under after three rounds.

Karen Nicolleti leads the women's professional division on 54 points, after an impressive 22 point haul at Riddell's Bay. Hot on her heels are Jen Jaszek, of Hi5 Golf, on 51, and Megan Chapman from The Georgian Bay Club, on 48.
