Leader in the Clubhouse
Seamus Power and Ben Griffin (-18, 195) are tied for the lead heading into the final round, both setting a new tournament record for low 54-hole scoring. The previous record was -17, 196, set by Harry Higgs in 2019 and matched by Taylor Pendrith last year.
With rounds of 65-65-65, Power posted eight birdies and a double bogey today as he looks for his second career PGA TOUR win. He was victorious at the 2021 Barbasol Championship. Griffin, with rounds of 65-64-66, posted four birdies and one bogey today as he pursues his first PGA TOUR win.
Kevin Yu and Aaron Baddeley are tied for third place (-16, 197), two strokes back of the leaders.
Former Champ in Contention
2020 Butterfield Bermuda Championship winner Brian Gay shot a 66 for the third straight round to sit in 5th place, three shots back at -15, 194. His final score two years ago was -15 overall when he won. Playing here every year, he has now scored under-par in 14 of his 15 rounds with a lone 75 in the first round of 2021.
A Tale of Two Nines
Brent Grant, -11, 202, shot 69 today. He ran off six straight birdies from #2-7 before a bogey on #9 to make the turn at -14. But the back nine saw him card two birdies, three bogeys and a double bogey on #17 to finish the round xx strokes off the lead.
Michael Sims (+1, 73-70=143) was the low Bermudian in the field this week by two strokes over Jarryd Dillas (+3, 69-76=145). Dillas, who finished his last hole Saturday morning, posted the lowest score ever by a Bermudian competing in the tournament historically with an opening round 69. Fellow Bermudians Nick Jones (+5, 71-76=147) and Kim Swan (+28, 89-81=170) also competed.
Second Round Suspension
The second round was suspended due to darkness at 7:01 p.m. with two players, Tano Goya and Jarryd Dillas, yet to complete the round. It resumed at 9:12 a.m. and was completed at 9:17 a.m. Goya sunk his par putt to make the cut at -6 and play the weekend.
