Godwin Chinseu and Jolene Bapu-Pereira made their presence felt at Country Club Limbe (CCL) on Saturday following their victories in the penultimate contest of the 2016 NBS Bank Monthly Mug.
The two have only a year of golfing experience but are slowly taking over the limelight. Chinseu counted out Phillip Phambana with 41 points in the men’s 36-contestants category to win his sixth trophy in 12 competitions while Bapu-Pereira earned her fourth victory in 10 events after topping the four-golfer ladies’ section with 36 points.
“Since I started playing golf in September last year, my performance graph has been rising fast,” said handicap-20 Chinseu, who had a total of eight pars and seven bogeys.
The member of Blantyre Sports Club’s (BSC) golf grouping Slaves of the Greens said he has come to stay at the top of local golf competitions.
As for Bapu-Pereira, she has improved her handicap from 36 to 23 within four months.
“My game has tremendously improved in the past few months and I would like to keep it that way. My target is to further improve my handicap to 20 by the end of this year and I will achieve that,” she said.
According to NBS Bank head of personal and business banking Mercus Chigoga, the winners have qualified for the end-of-the-year Winner-of-winners Championship to be held next month.
“We are satisfied with the support we get from the golfers who are among our valued clients. We promise to keep the fire burning and watch out for the Winner-of-winners Championship next month,” Chigoga said. n
