PGA Tour Golf Tips
The Butterfield Bermuda Championship is a professional golf tournament on the PGA Tour that debuted in October/November 2019 as part of the 2020 season. The tournament is played at the Port Royal Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones, in Southampton Parish, Bermuda.
Date: Oct 27–30, 2022
Despite the relative lack of star power traveling to Bermuda, the stakes remain the same. The Bermuda Championship will be receiving standalone status for the 2022-23 season, so the winner will be afforded all the riches of a run-of-the-mill PGA Tour stop including 500 FedEx Cup points, major championship exemptions and job security for the foreseeable future.
Ranked among the world’s best public golf courses by Golf Digest and named Bermuda’s finest course by the New York Times, Port Royal features 18 championship holes over 6,842 manicured yards, the longest and most picturesque course in all of Bermuda.
Port Royal has recently undergone a $14.5 million renovation, a complete makeover spearheaded by original design team member Roger Rulewich in preparation for the 2009/2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf. With the support of the Bermuda Government, Port Royal is now one of the world’s premier public golf courses boasting TifEagle greens, a state-of-the art irrigation system and sweeping ocean views from nearly every hole. Add to that its’ 300-yard oceanfront driving range and the course’s luxurious clubhouse and your Port Royal experience is sure to be unforgettable.
Thomas Detry (18-1): Capturing some PGA Tour status via the Korn Ferry Tour Playoffs, Detry has taken full advantage of his playing opportunities. Finishing T12 at the Fortinet Championship and T9 at the Sanderson Farms Championship, the Belgian fell off his rapid pace just a touch at the Shriners Children’s Open. After a couple weeks of rest, Detry should be able to threaten at Port Royal GC where he finished T22 a season ago.
Robby Shelton (40/1): Shelton has done well since regaining his PGA tour card. 3 starts, 3 made cuts, and was briefly in contention at the shriners before falling away over the weekend. He doesn’t have much length off the tee, but he doesn’t need it here, and his short game has been among the best on tour so far this season. He also won 2 of his last 10 events on the korn ferry tour.
Callum Tarren (50/1): Tarren should be able to bomb and gouge here, and has gained strokes putting in 4 of his last 5 events. Had a t13 on the Bermuda greens at the Sanderson earlier this month. Very inconsistent, boom/bust player, but if he’s on he can definitely be in contention at this event. He was disqualified here last year for signing an incorrect scorecard.
