PGA Professionals to Captain Teams, Compete for $100,000 in Inaugural BERMUDA 3s presented by Goslings3 min read


Posted on: 22nd May 2018

World Team Par 3 Championship debuts in October Matching PGA Pro Am Teams from Continental Europe, UK, Canada and U.S.

The BERMUDA 3s presented by Goslings, a new team par 3 golf championship matching Pro-Am teams from four international territories will be held October 21-26, 2018 in Bermuda. PGA Professionals will captain Continental Europe teams and compete individually for a $100,000 purse.

The event is the creation of two golf industry veterans, former PGA of America chief executive Joe Steranka and Honda Classic Executive Director Ken Kennerly, and is sponsored by the Bermuda Tourism Authority and Goslings. Certified PGA Professionals from the U.S., Canada, Great Britain & Ireland and Continental Europe will lead four-person teams.

“There is nothing more exciting than representing your country in any endeavor but especially golf,” said Steranka who was instrumental in the growth of the modern-day Ryder Cup. “BERMUDA 3s is a celebration of the game and a recognition of the influential role PGA Professionals have around the world.”

Entry fees of $12,500 per team will earn a PGA Professional and their three amateur partners one of just 20 places per region and a place in one of golf’s most extraordinary experiences including competition on the fabled Mid Ocean Club, Port Royal Golf Course and Turtle Hill Golf Club; five nights of single accommodations at the Fairmont Southampton on Bermuda’s stunning south shore; and memorable evening functions including opening and closing ceremonies, award winning food and acclaimed Bermuda hospitality.

“We’re pleased to have been selected as one of four territories competing for this world title,” said Confederation of Professional Golf Chief Executive Ian Randell. “Par 3 golf is a great way to learn, hone your skills, and provide a fun, shorter form of the game. Combined with the opportunity for continental European PGA Professionals to travel and compete in a place such as Bermuda, this will be a superb opportunity to showcase Par 3 golf, and the Championship will no doubt attract great interest.”

For 320 golfers this will be the experience of a lifetime,” said Kennerly whose company K2 Sports Ventures oversees the Honda Classic and owns The FITTEAM Palm Beaches Marathon. “We’re also excited to have this global coalition of PGA Professionals embrace the Par 3 format which they believe can be a great entry point for golfers new to the game and one which helps established golfers work on their short game.”

“We’re delighted to partner with some of the leaders in golf to bring this new event to life out here in Bermuda,” said Bermuda Tourism Authority Chief Executive Kevin Dallas. “Ken and Joe were keen to engage with certified PGA professionals from Bermuda’s key feeder markets. We know that Bermuda’s legendary hospitality and amazing courses will deliver an unrivaled experience for participants and look forward to building this into one of the most sought-after invitations in golf.”

Bermuda has been a popular golf destination since hosting the PGA Grand Slam of Golf from 2007-2014 at Mid Ocean and Port Royal. The Fairmont Southampton served as the host hotel for dozens of major champions and their families. “We are thrilled to be hosting this prestigious group of international golf professionals and their members at Fairmont Southampton. October’s weather is perfect for golf in Bermuda with moderate temperatures and low humidity. We look forward to hosting this new annual event here at the Fairmont Southampton for many years to come,” said Kiaran MacDonald, Regional Vice President, Caribbean and General Manager, Fairmont Southampton.

Registration will open at 12:00 noon EST on Tuesday, May 22. PGA Professionals or amateurs may reserve their team via email to info@bermuda3s.com, calling 561-379-2134 or registering online at http://eur.pe/2018Bermuda3s.
