OK - here it is - the Butterfield Bermuda Championship 2021. Going to put it out there now and predict that this might be the tournament thread with the fewest posts all year. Looking at the field, it almost seems like a three Tour event with Korn Ferry and Champions Tour guys with some PGA Tour players. Really not sure what else to say beyond that, so here’s the thread:-

 

Defending Champion:-

Brain Gay


Notables in the Field:-

Luke Donald

Jason Dunfer

Matt Fitzpatrick

Graeme McDowell

Patrick Reed

Danny Willett

 

The alternates list is incredible:-

Olin Browne

Frank Lickliter 

Jonathan Kaye

Tommy Armour III

Will Mackenzie

Paul Stankowski

Shaun Micheel

Jason Gore

Smylie Kaufmann

Cody Gribble

 

Course:-

Port Royal Golf Course, Southampton, Bermuda

Par 71

6,842 yards

wind can make this course yardage deceptive, but its not a crazy hard course or a very prestigious event. 

 

Try and notch a win against the B team and secure some status and enjoy some dark and stormy's 🍹

Might get more of a turnout if it was later into fall/winter?  When guys might like a chance to get to warmer weather? 

Bermuda can get kinda chilly during the winter months

Yes, the PGATOUR still play courses under 7000 yards. If you listen to some, golf courses of this length are totally obsolete, which is complete nonsense.....IMO

 

They can play whatever length they want.  This particular one is less than 7k and par 71.

 

 

It's everything we want golf courses to be and more!

 

"Designed by world-renowned architect Robert Trent Jones Sr. in 1970, Port Royal has recently undergone a $14.5 million renovation, a complete makeover spearheaded by original design team member Roger Rulewich in preparation for the 2009/2010 PGA Grand Slam of Golf. With the support of the Bermuda Government, Port Royal is now one of the world’s premier public golf courses boasting TifEagle greens, a state-of-the art irrigation system and sweeping ocean views from nearly every hole. Add to that its’ 300-yard oceanfront driving range and the course’s luxurious clubhouse and your Port Royal experience is sure to be unforgettable."

 

They have also added ~300 yards more than the scorecard "tips" black tees for the event.  The 17th is only 507yard par 5 for the tournament.

 

Twenty plus under wins this unless the wind howls.

The alternate list has been exhausted for this event and the field is only 130 players. Says a lot about the current situation with the world but I don’t think I’ve ever seen the list run out of alternates.

NFL and NBA seasons are started, so can't give a spot to Romo or Steph.

Saw on Twitter that Hayden Buckley got engaged over the weekend.  Won't be surprised if he gets his third straight top-10 finish this week.  Also, Chad Ramey isn't long off the tee but was extremely accurate last year on the KFT.  This might be the type of course that fits his game extremely well.

Two Mississippi picks from Mississippi fan lol. 
 

Agree with you on Buck. A couple of these KFT grads will be in contention this week

The average low in December around what, 62°/63°?! Might need a windbreaker! 🥶

I've been a few times when it's been cold enough for pants golf

 

I'm just saying its not like Bahamas hot in the winter where you pack the swim trunks and take the kids.

My interest definitely leans towards the Mississippi players, but that also means I follow them more closely.  Knowing the KFT stats on Ramey from last season, combined with this shorter course, plus his being in contention a couple of weeks ago before fading on Sunday--all those things combined make him a pretty good long shot bet for this week.  I would love to see Davis Riley get in the mix as well, but his game has really suffered since he won his 2nd KF event in 2020 and then seemingly started pressing to get the 3-win promotion.  Guess it added more pressure that right about that time his housemate Will Zalatoris was taking the PGA Tour by storm.  That had to make Riley feel like he could be an instant success if he could just get a 3rd win.

Oh yeah I’m with you on them as potential contenders. I caddie on the KF so I’m familiar with all 3 of those guys. 
 

out of the 3 I like buck the best but for me Greyson Sigg is the most underrated out there

      About The L.A.B. Golf Mezz.1 Putter
      MEZZ.1 is our new mid-mallet putter that’s fully CNC machined from a billet of 6061 aircraft aluminum (body) and 303 stainless steel (midsection) to create our best-feeling — and we think best looking — putter to date. It includes 10 weights (eight on the bottom, two on the sides) that allow us to individually build each putter to a golfer’s exact specifications.
       
      How To Apply
      In a post below, answer the following questions.
       
      1. City, State?
      2. Handicap?
      3. What is your current putter?
      4. Have you ever used a L.A.B. Golf putter?
      5. Why do you want to review the MEAZZ.1 putter?
      6. Do you agree to participate in an ongoing testing thread, posting reviews and photos?
       
      That's it! @labgolf and GolfWRX will choose the testers in about 2 weeks! This testing event is for good-standing members in the USA only!
