Butterfield Bermuda to Power

Halloween and Dia de los Muertos have arrived in the United States. Golf enthusiasts all over the country have created meme after meme about the “scariest hole” or “scariest shot” of the game. It’s fun to play on islands, but it can be dangerous. The beauty of great golf can be overwhelming until it is too late. Except for the PGA World Tours and DP World Tours, all world tours were on pause this week. The Asia-Pacific Amateur held its annual recognition ceremony in Thailand this year. Why is this important? There are many reasons why it is important, but two stand out (read more). This week’s Tour Rundown will feature a trio of tournaments.

Asia-Pacific Amateur: Crowe emerges from Bo’s

Harrison Crowe held a two-shot lead into the final round at the APA. The Asia-Pacific tournament is an amateur tournament that awards the winner a place in next year’s Masters or Open events. Crowe was able to go out in just 39 strokes thanks to three bogies, and zero birdies. Bo Jin, a Chinese player, was his closest rival and took advantage of Crowe’s difficulties to win five more shots than the outward half. Jin had three birdies to one bogey and seemed deserving of the trophy and invitations.

The Masters doesn’t actually begin until Sunday, as is often the case with the Masters. The 2022 Asia-Pacific Amateur’s denouement was also a success. Jin managed to pull off an amazing eagle on the par-four 14th, which brought him to 15-under par. Crowe did not leave the course. From 11 to 13, the Australian made three consecutive birdies, then followed by a fourth at par-five 15. Are you tired yet? Jin made a bogey at 13 and Crowe made one 16 years later. Jin was caught by the 17th green, which reminded him of Pete Dye’s 17th hole at Sawgrass. Crowe made a double par and Jin made a bogey. Crowe held a one shot advantage on the 72nd hole after more back-and forth than a tennis match. Crowe won the title by getting up and down to win. The next thing was…

PGA Tour: Butterfield Bermuda is part of Power

Seamus Power and Ben Griffin began the final round in Bermuda as a tie for first place. Both had managed to get to 18-under par with slightly different numbers. Power had three straight 65s while Power was 65-64-66. The title was up for grabs, with neither Power nor Power having a great track record of victories on the tour.

Griffin lit Port Royal over the first 11 holes and played the stretch in five under par figures. Griffin lost his grip on the trophy just as it appeared he would choke hold. Griffin fell from 23-under to minus 17. Griffin’s week of work earned him third place, tied with Patrick Rodgeres and Kevin Yu.

Power was three-under through 12 holes. He then made his first bogey on the day at the thirteenth. He would not make another par but, unbelieveably, he would still be on the podium. Birdies at 14 & 17 nearly balanced out three more bogies (15-16, 18). Thomas Detry quietly rose up the leaderboard, posting 67 to get to 18 under par. Power needed five to win the second tour title. He putted downhill from five feet for par and then hit the ball three inches for victory.

DP World Tour – World’s most trendiest country crowns its Masters Champion

Portugal is a hot spot for the world’s culinary elite. The younger crowd has recognized some of its neighborhoods as being smoking. Its golf course is solid, and Vilamoura on the south coast welcomed the DP World Tour’s best to its greens this week. The year’s greatest golfing talent was displayed at Dom Pedro Victoria golf club.

Gavin Green signed for three rounds 64 and one 65 to begin. This brought him to 27-under par. This demonstration earned him second place for the week. Tapio Pulkkanen (22) and Eddie Pepperell (20) were well-represented in the double-consonant brigade, but their totals only achieved a third or fourth place finish, respectively.

Jordan Smith, an English golfer, was the star of the week. The 31-year-old golfer started the week with a 62 and then fell to 67 in round 2. It was evident that the game was on, but it didn’t end there. Smith posted another62 on Saturday and said that he couldn’t remember another time when he played as well. Green maintained the pressure and Smith posted a 63 on Sunday. He finished the week with 30 strokes less than par.

Green’s 257 strokes tied the previous low on the DP World Tour. It’s a nice consolation prize. Smith won his second career title, but also first in five years on the DP World Tour. Smith beat the total-strokes record of three shots and the below-par record of one shot (previously, -29). He was actually playing some very good golf!
