Australia’s Lucas Herbert, 57th in the world, won the Bermuda Championship on Sunday, his first title on the North American Golf Tour (PGA), which was contested in windy and rainy conditions at the Port Royal Golf Club in Southampton.
Author on Sunday with a card of 69 and finishing the 72 holes at 269 strokes (under-15), Herbert was suddenly ahead of 2018 Masters winner Patrick Reed and New Zealander Danny Lee.
“It was quite difficult. It was a day when a par would be a good score, ”responded the Australian. “I had the impression of having toiled in the field. You might have hit very good putts without success. You had to stay strong and patient, and finally the blows came to me. “
The 25-year-old has already won two titles on the European Tour, the Dubai Desert Classic last year and the Irish Open last July.
In the lead on Saturday after the 3rd round, Canada’s Taylor Pendrith missed the last lap, completing bogeys on the 6th, 7th and 8th holes and a double bogey on the 17th. He finished in 5th place, tied with American Scott Stallings, author of a brilliant 62. American Patrick Rodgers is 4th with a total of 271.
