The tournament continued with golfers including Governor John Rankin taking to the course in some challenging conditions.
The decision to hold The Governorís Cup 2020 was a difficult one, with Hurricane Paulette 206 NM South East of the island and rapidly approaching the island, with marginal hurricane-force winds that were forecast to intensify later in the day the committee made a calculated decision to go ahead. However, their fears were unfounded as the threat of deteriorating conditions was no match for the doggedly determined 48 players that turned out to participate in the Ocean View vs The Governorís Cup challenge.
This being the final year for H.E. The Governor, John Rankin to play in this historic event, it was both exciting and suspense-filled, as The Governorís team had not been successful in winning the challenge since his arrival in Bermuda. Nonetheless, it was not to be as the Ocean View team once again defended their title with a closely contested 11 point victory, accumulating a total of 131.5 points against The Governor's 120.5 points, under the 21-point partner best ball format.
