The Field is set for the 2020 Bermuda Championship Local Qualifier that will be held at Port Royal Golf Club on Tuesday, October 13th & Wednesday, October 14th, 2020.
The Qualifier is intended to provide an opportunity for Bermudian amateur and professional players to qualify for three (3) qualifying places and three (3) alternate places in the Bermuda Championship.
During the 2019 Qualifier at Port Royal Golf Course, former Korn Ferry Tour player Michael Sims, amateur Jarryd Dillas and teenager Kenny Leseur finished as joint medalists at 5-over par.
Daniel Augustus IV, a first alternate, qualified for the tournament on a sponsor exemption. The four golfers joined Dwayne Pearman, also a sponsor exemption, to make history last October as the first Bermudians to compete in a PGA TOUR event.
For the 2020 Qualifier, four of the five have signed up with the youngster Kenny Leseur unable to commit this year due to schooling obligations.
The field of 24 golfers also includes female golfer Tariqah Walikraam, we asked if Walikraam is successful is she eligible to compete in the event, Sean Sovacool the Tournament Director for the Bermuda Championship indicated, “If she qualifies she is in.”
Walikraam will be seeking to become the 7th woman to compete alongside men on the PGA Tour.
