Local Qualifier

Congratulations to Michael Sims, Camiko Smith, Chaka DeSilva, and Damian Palanyandi who qualified to compete for Bermuda in the Butterfield Bermuda Championship. They join previously announced sponsor exemption, Brian Morris.


Michael Sims showed his poise, carding two-over par 144 to earn his third start in the PGA TOUR event. The top finishing Bermudian, winning by four strokes, had the low round of the day with a second straight one-over par 72.


Winds subsided for the second round of the local qualifier and the pressure was high for the golfers. Camiko Smith carded a five-over 76 to finish at six-over 148 and get his second consecutive start. Chaka DeSilva will make his professional debut after finishing at eight-over par 150 with a round of 73. Amateur Damian Palanyandi also finished with a round of 73 for a nine-over par 151. This will be his first start on the PGA TOUR.
