Events like the Bermuda Championship can springboard a young player’s career or provide a catalyst for a proven winner. This week, the latter occurred as Brendan Todd soared to a four-stroke victory over Tour rookie Harry Higgs. Todd began the final round trailing by two strokes, and started his day with a par on the first. Then, after seven straight birdies on holes 2 through 8, he found himself leading by six with a front-9 score of 29. Brendan Todd added more birdies on 10 and 11, and another birdie on 15 allowed him to enjoy the final three holes. Despite a bogey on 18, Brendan still managed to shoot a 9-under 62, and earn his 2nd career PGA Tour win and break a 5 ½ year winless drought.
