Barely three weeks after taking over as Blantyre Sports Club (BSC) golf captains Webster Kaunga and Connie Muguvu proved their mettle on Country Club Limbe (CCL) greens last weekend when they basked in the NBS Bank Monthly Mug glory in men and women’s categories respectively.
Kaunga outclassed a 55-strongfield with net-65 while last month’s champion Donbell Mandala finished second with net 69 to count out Tarang Makhecha to the third slot.
Muguvu won in the four-player women’s section after she counted out NBS Bank marketing officer Lilian Kawaza with net 78.
Nevertheless, Muguvu, who started off with a birdie on par-five before gorging herself on eight pars, appeared to be the happiest golfer on the day.
“I did not play as good as I expected today, but I still managed to be the champion. It feels good to win the 14th trophy since February,” Muguvu said.
According to Kawaza, this was the last-but-one monthly mug before the end-of-year Mug of Mugs Championship that attracts top three golfers of each monthly contest.
She added that NBS Bank is still committed to sponsoring the competition.
