Championship leader holds slender advantage
Alan Smith holds a one-shot lead heading into today’s second and penultimate round of the Bermuda Amateur Stroke Play Championships at Port Royal Golf Course.
Smith carded a one-under-par 70 during yesterday’s opening round of the 54-hole championship which included four birdies, a bogey and a double bogey.
Breathing down his neck is Jarryd Dillas who managed an even par 71 that included four birdies, two bogeys and a double bogey.
Four shots back in third is Walker Campbell whose opening round four-over-par 75 included two birdies, four bogeys and a double bogey.
Christopher Phillips carded a four-over-par 75 to carve out a three-shot lead among the senior men’s division over Ian Page, Nick Fernandez and Terry Mullan who all produced identical rounds of seven -over- par 78.
Things are also very tight at the top of the Ladies division where Laura Robinson holds a one-shot lead over Tariqah Walikraam.
Robinson carded a five -over-par 76 which included two birdies, five bogeys and a double bogey while Walikramm’s six-over-par 77 contained one birdie and seven bogeys.
Six shots further off the pace in third is Linda Down whose opening round 12-over-par 83 included eight bogeys and two double bogeys.
Down leads the senior ladies division by one shot over Tracy Nash whose 13-over-par 84 included seven bogeys and three double bogeys.
