On a sunny Sunday, Teri Amaro and Sangwani Hara were over the moon as 47 golfers clapped hands for them.
The two (Amaro and Hara) outclassed other golfers to be crowned champions of the Conforzi Plantations Limited Golf Tournament held at Thyolo Sports Club in the men and women categories respectively.
Hara scooped 48 points to be crowned champion. Golfers present said this is a record breaker as previous winners have not gotten such points.
“A birdie on hole nine and various pars made me win the tourney. This is my first crown since I launched the golfing career last year,” he said.
Stephen Chanje came second after he amassed 47 points and Devlin Chokazinga third on 40 points.
Chanje was lost for words. He did not speak or face the audience as he preferred gestures depicting a job well done.
Harold Lungu was decorated with the longest drive accolade.
In the women’s category Amaro beat the other five golfers to claim the title.
“I don’t know what to say because my playing partners such as Wilma Chalulu and Arnes Araujo gave me tough time. I was just focused because I knew my mission,” she said.
Conforzi, who invested K5 million into the tournament, donated K200 000 towards maintenance of the golf course greens.
Representatives of the company promised more competitive events so that business captains meet and discuss business deals.n
