Simon Lilly Wins the Inaugural BERMUDA 3s Presented by Goslings2 min read


Posted on: 26th Oct 2018

Bermuda3s World Team Championship presented by Goslings – an exciting new golf championship contested by pro-am teams from around the world – was won by professional Simon Lilly of Northamptonshire, England, at five-under-par.

Lilly took over once the tournament arrived at the final round venue, the famous par-3 Turtle Hill Golf Club at the Fairmont Southampton, on Wednesday. He fired a course record, bogey-free seven-under-par 47, and maintained his lead as he cruised to victory on Thursday over professionals from around the world.

“I just went out and tried to score as low as possible and got off to a nice start and just kept it going,” says, Lilly. “We had a bit of rain and a couple of really heavy downpours. There was also a little bit of breeze but nothing major. It was just one of those good days.”

In the team competition Professional, Cary Sciorra, and amateurs Tom Tracy, Tom Corr and John Coleman of Medalist Golf Club in Hobe Sound, Fla., won the low gross division. In the low net division, Bermudians Dwayne Pearman (P), Michael Dunkley, Christopher Morris and Craig Christensen of Turtle Hill prevailed earning the gold medal.

BERMUDA 3s presented by Goslings, is the creation of two golf industry veterans, Joe Steranka, former CEO of the PGA of America, and Honda Classic Executive Director, Ken Kennerly. Sponsored by the Bermuda Tourism Authority and Goslings Rum, PGA Professionals from the U.S., Great Britain & Ireland, Bermuda and Spain competed individually for $52,000 in professional money.

“We could not have asked for a better start to this new world pro-am,” says Steranka. “From Mid Ocean, Port Royal, Turtle Hill and the Fairmont Southampton all being amazing hosts, to the quality of play from our participants, it has truly been a world-class event.”

Bermuda has been a popular international golf destination since hosting the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 2007-’14 at Mid Ocean and Port Royal. The Fairmont Southampton was the host hotel for those competing and home to championship venue, Turtle Hill Golf Club.

“This amazing country has long been an international meeting place for sports,” says co-founder Kennerly. “to have champions in the Professional, Team Gross and Team Net divisions from three different countries is what we dreamed of when we created this event.”
