Bernhard shot a beautiful final round of -8 under par 64 on the Hualalai Golf Course to win the Mitsubishi Electric Championship title by three shots with his tournament score of -22 under par.
Bernhard was extremely pleased with his win;
“It’s a new year and my goal was to get over the hurdle and win as soon as possible. I’m very pleased and extremely blessed to play golf like this. To be 22 under doesn’t happen very often.”
Fred Couples and Jeff Sluman finished tied in second place at -19 under par. Jay Haas was in fourth spot alone on -17 under par.
Jeff was making his 80th consecutive senior start, he has been among the tour’s top-20 money winners the last five years. All but one of his five birdies came from inside 6 feet, due to great iron play. He finished the last round with a -7 under par 65, with a -19 under par total;
“My iron shots were pretty bueno on those.”
Fred was looking for his 10th Champions win and second in a row, he had a -5 under par 67 last round to also finish at -19 under par.
The seniors play here again Sept. 18-21 in the Champions Tour Pacific Links Hawaii Championship at Kapolei.
