On a windy round #2 at Port Royal Golf Course, the course conditions became more difficult, with the varying elevations at Port Royal making shotmaking very deceptive. Especially holes #7 to 18 which are all exposed to the coastal breezes.
The sports story of the year, is the round of the day posted by 15 year old Kenny Leseur Jr.
This result is a dream come true for young Kenny Jr who has long dreamed to play on the PGA Tour, who now wins that spot against Bermuda’s top players, and will tee up in a PGA Tour event on his home course Port Royal.Front runners Michael Sims and Jared Dillas hung on in the end, on a day where the wind wreaked havoc. They also will get the opportunity to compete in the $3 million dollar PGA Tour Bermuda Championship.
For Michael Sims especially, this is a long overdue opportunity. As a former PGA Nationwide Tour Player this is a his chance to realize his true potential and jumpstart his professional golf career.
Amateur Jared Dillas has enjoyed a successful amateur golf career, and like Sims, put himself into a good position with a stellar first round performance.
First Alternate Spot goes to Daniel Augustus who struggled on and around the green.
While we congratulate the successful qualifiers for a job well done. We must salute the organizers PH Horgan 111, Executive Director, Sean Sovocol, Bruno Sports Marketing, Hon. Zane Desilva and Hon. Lt. Col. David Burch of the Bermuda Government, Port Royal Golf Course and the Bermuda Tourism Authority for providing this awesome opportunity for Bermuda’s Elite Golfers.
