High Winds Hamper Canadian Club Pro Play In Bermuda

Hole #16, Port Royal GC, Bermuda

It was a rough start for PGA Cub Professional Championship of Canada in Bermuda with winds of 40 km/h knocking around players during the 1st round at the Port Royal Golf Club.

Despite the daunting conditions Brian Hadley of the Thames Valley Golf Club in London, Ontario, managed to keep himself near level par for the day.

A score of 72 (+1) has Hadley owning a two-shot lead with 36 holes left on the schedule.

“Other than the double I made on the seventh hole, I played pretty solidly out there today,” Hadley shared. “My game plan today was to just get it in play off the tee, hit a lot of greens and shoot somewhere around even-par.”

Chasing Hadley closely are Scott Allred of Alberta and Craig Hocknull, currently working in Arizona. Both toured the Robert Trent Jones, Sr. design in 74 strokes. One back of that is defending champion Danny King of The Performance Academy at Magna, Victoria Golf Club’s Lindsay Bernakevitch and 2004 winner Ian Doig.

3-time PGA of Ontario Champion Hadley is no surprise as the leader, the 35 year-old is well-known for shooting 59 during the 2013 edition of that championship. But that is no concern to him this week as he tries to stay focussed on the task ahead.

“There’s still a lot of golf to played out here this week,” he said. “I don’t think the wind is going anywhere, so I’ve just got to keep doing the same things that worked for me today and avoid the big number.”

“But, this is a PGA of Canada national championship so it would be pretty fun to be in contention later this week.”

The Inter-Zone Team Championship, which is comprised of four players per zone (and three scores per team counting), will be determined after 36 holes. Team Ontario leads by eight shots over Alberta, with British Columbia 10 back.
