Mpingwe Sports Club (MSC) Championship ended on Monday with all the four categories, namely Order of Merit, Victoria Bureau Grand Finale, Meatco Match Play and Rainbow Paints Doubles, being decided on the final day.
The tournaments were played at Blantyre Sports Club and attracted 54 golfers.
The tournaments teed off in February, but were suspended the following month due to Covid-19 before resuming two months ago.
In the MSC Order of Merit Premier League, which was played on league basis, Yusuf Shiraz Yusuf emerged the champion. Ali Mussa was the runner-up while 14-year-old nine-handicapped Rayaan Raidaan, stole the show after finishing third.
Yusuf, who played off handicap 11, attributed his success to composure.
“I was level-headed and I played under no pressure. Everything that I applied worked to perfection and I am happy to have won,” he said.
Furkan Gani, who is rated as one of the top amateur golfers on the domestic scene, emerged triumphant in the Victoria Forex Bureau Grand Finale followed by Yusuf while Ali Musa was third.
On his part, Gani, who plays off handicap nine, said: “I knew I would win because I was consistent throughout the tournament coupled with my experience.”
The MatchPlay Championship saw Jamil Sattar finishing top followed by Moshin Raidhan while Lukman Aziz came third.
Gani and Jamil Sattar won the Rainbow Paints Doubles after seeing off a spirited challenge from father and son—Akbar and Muhammad Bhana.
Yusuf, who is also MSC golf secretary, thanked golf captain Billar Raidhan for his commitment and passion in the organisation of the tournament and the golf section as a whole.
“His leadership has seen membership rise dramatically from 20 to 54 and it has members as young as 10 years old,” he said.
Raidhan thanked sponsors of the tournament and the golfers, saying: “Without their commitment and determination, the championship would not have been a success.”
