Brendon Todd won the inaugural Bermuda Championship in runaway fashion in 2019.
He recorded rounds of 68-63-67-62 for a four-shot victory over Harry Higgs. Todd was six shots clear of a tie for third place. The former Georgia Bulldog birdied nine of his first 10 holes on his 9-under-par final round.
"“It’s one of the shorter ones we play on the [PGA] Tour and it forces everybody to hit the ball with the same clubs off the tee because there’s cross bunkers … in certain places,” Todd was transcribed by Tee Scripts in 2019. “The good thing about that for me is, I’m hitting the same clubs into the greens as everybody else and for some reason that tends to work out well in my favor.”"
This will be Todd’s first appearance back at Port Royal since 2020.
Todd is near the bottom of the PGA Tour in driving distance.
He once battled the driver yips, but now he’s one of the most precise players off the tee. He ranks ninth in fairway percentage (67.26%).
NBC Sports ranks him as the second-best player on short courses in strokes gained over the past two years.
The 38-year-old is also third in Strokes Gained: Around-the-Green (.448 per round) and 16th in SG: Putting (.486).
Todd comes into the week well-rested with his last start coming in September at the Fortinet Championship. He’s hoping he can continue the same form that helped him to solo sixth in Napa.
Todd has made his last five cuts, which includes T-2nd at the John Deere Classic.
With three career PGA Tour wins, Todd is one of the more decorated players in the field at the Butterfield Bermuda Championship.
