Bermuda Champion Wins Again in Mexico

IslandStats.com
Just another manic Monday for Brendon Todd, who clinched the Mayakoba Golf Classic with a gutty par at 18 for a one-stroke victory over a trio of players and his second straight PGA Tour title.

“It’s incredible. I’m just overcome with emotion right now,” said Todd, who had to play the final four holes on Monday. “The whole final round was much more nerve-wracking than Bermuda.”

The Todd comeback story keeps getting better and better. After starting the year ranked No. 2006 in the world, he regained full status on the Tour at the Korn Ferry Tour Finals and then ended a five-year victory drought with his second career title at the Bermuda Championship.

Todd started the final round with a one-stroke lead after shooting 65 in Sunday’s third round. Todd made three birdies on the front nine and tacked on another at No. 12 to lead by two strokes. Just when it looked like he might coast to victory again, Taylor made birdie at 13 and Todd made a bogey at 14, his first of the week on the back nine, and the lead was gone. One hole later, the final threesome ran out of daylight as played was suspended at 6:11 p.m. with 12 of the 82 golfers who made the cut still on the course.

But not as happy as Todd, who sunk his 4-foot par putt and hoisted a trophy for the second straight Tour event. Todd takes home $1,296,000 for the win at Mayakoba, two weeks after winning $540,000 at Bermuda. He also became the first player to win twice in the fall portion of the schedule in a single season since the Tour went to a wraparound schedule in 2013-14.

Bermuda Champion Leads in Mexico

IslandStats.com
Brendon Todd, coming off a victory in Bermuda, shared the direct with fellow American Vaughn Taylor on Sunday when darkness halted the remaining spherical of the US PGA Mayakoba Classic.

Taylor and Todd, each on 20-underneath par with four holes to finish, have been amongst seven prime-10 players yet to finish their closing round when sunset fell at Playa del Carmen, Mexico.

The competition fell behind after major rains washed out Thursday’s opening round play.

Mexico’s Carlos Ortiz and American Harris English ended up on 19-under, Ortiz with one hole to play and English with 4 remaining. American Adam Prolonged was 18-under with three holes remaining.

Todd seized the lead with a six-under par 65 in Sunday’s 3rd round and players went straight into the last round, hurrying in a unsuccessful bid to full 36 holes on the closing working day.

Todd, 34, gained his to start with US PGA crown at the 2014 Byron Nelson Championship then finished a five-year drought before winning the Bermuda Championship.

“I feel fantastic about my activity. Satisfied to have a likelihood to get this following winning in Bermuda,” Todd said. “I am enthusiastic for the chance.”

Sims Played & Caddied on PGA Tour in 2019

IslandStats.com
What 40-year-old Michael Sims did last week by teeing it up in the inaugural Bermuda Championship – his first PGA Tour start – has been done before, but it’s awfully rare writes T.J. Auclair.

With the start, it meant Sims both played – and caddied – on the PGA Tour in 2019.

Back in April, Sims played fill-in caddie for longtime friend Lucas Glover in the Valero Texas Open while Glover’s regular bagman, Don Cooper, had a week back home.

“Lucas texted and asked what I had going on that week,” Sims recalled. “I said, ‘nothing.’ He asked me to come hang out and I said, ‘yeah.’ That’s how it went down. Arrangements were made and I happened to go buy a pair of sneakers to walk the course and the rest of that jazz.”

His caddie gig with Glover was merely a pinch-hit situation, but it was a fruitful one, as Glover finished T14, one of a remarkable 16, top-25 finishes in 26 starts last season.

So, that was the caddie segment of 2019 for Sims. The player segment was still to come.

Like we said, it’s been done before, but it’s rare. Perhaps the most notable example was in 2008, also at the Valero Texas Open.

Our Craig Dolch detailed that tale in a fantastic feature on Lance Ten Broeck. Here’s the excerpt from the feature, explaining how Ten Broeck caddied for Jesper Parnevik AND played in the same tournament.

Todd Wins Inaugural PGA Tour Bermuda Championships

Todd & Premier David Burt
IslandStats.com
World number 525 Brendon Todd carded a 9-under par Final Round of 62 to win his second PGA title with a four-shot win at the Bermuda Championship at the Port Royal Golf Course.

The 34-year-old American won the 2014 Byron Nelson Championship but had not posted a top-10 finish since 2015.

He began the final day two behind Harry Higgs but made seven successive birdies on the front nine at the Port Royal Golf Club and finished on 24 under.

Higgs was second after a 68, with Scot Russell Knox joint 11th, 10 shots back.

Todd lost his card in 2016 and between 2015 and 2018 he made just four of 43 cuts on the PGA Tour.
