Brian Gay Wins Bermuda Championship PDF Print E-mail

 

Brian Gay returned to winner's circle in Bermuda



Southhampton, Bermuda - It had been nearly 8 years since Brian Gay

won on the PGA Tour, but Sunday, he birdied the 1st hole of a sudden-

death playoff to beat Wyndham Clark at the Bermuda Championship at

Port Royal Golf Course.

 

The 48-year-old former Florida Gator becomes the oldest winner of a

PGA Tour event since Davis Love III at the '15 Wyndham Championship.

After dropping a shot at the par-5 17th, Gay birdied the 72nd hole

Sunday to fire a final round 64 to reach -15 and a playoff with Wyndham

Clark.

 

"I grew up in the south on bermudagrass, I love bermuda greens. Living

in Florida, the wind doesn't bother me. I think it's familiarity with the

bermudagrass," Gay said. "It's not a long golf course, it's a course where

I get a lot of short clubs and you can't really overpower the golf course.

It keeps the shorter hitters in the game, everybody has a chance here."

 

Wyndham Clark dropped a shot at the par-3 16th and missed an attempt

from 10ft for the win on the home hole. The victory was Brian Gay's first

since the 2013 Humana Challenge and his fifth career title on the PGA Tour.
