Bermuda Championship R1

Peter Malnati takes opening lead

October 29 – November 01
Port Royal Golf Course, Southampton, Bermuda
$4,000,000
Round 2, Round 3, Round 4




Peter Malnati started his opening round on Thursday at the Bermuda Championship with five straight birdies and closed it with his ninth birdie for an 8-under 63 to take a one shot lead.


Bermuda is the first tournament to allow fans on the course, limited to 500 a day at Port Royal, since The Players Championship in March. It is the first time he has seen his 1-year old son at a Tour event since the pandemic.

“With everything in the world right now, and this island is doing a phenomenal job with their testing protocol and keeping everyone safe, I just didn’t know if it was actually going to work for them to get out here. So coming off that disappointing bogey on 17, I hit a nice drive on 18 and before I even get my yardage or anything, I see my wife and boy standing out there.



“It just brought a huge smile to my face. To see them and then to finish with that birdie, I’m a happy man.”

Malnati has been on form recently, finishing runner-up at the Sanderson Farms Championship and tying for fifth at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. It was the third time he posted 63 or lower in his last three events.


More upcoming tournaments will allow limited numbers of fans back on the course. The Houston Tournament will allow no more than 2000 a day and the Sentry Tournament of Champions, the first event of 2021, also just announced it it would have limited fans.

As the HSBC Champions in Shanghai was canceled due to the pandemic, the Bermuda Championship receives full status this year and the winner will be invited to next year’s Masters.
