This has been a tough golf season for Paul Chidale, but after winning the 2014’s penultimate NBS Bank Monthly Mug at Country Club Limbe (CCL) last weekend, the youthful golfer has promised fireworks in future events.
Unlike last year, when he won seven out of 13 competitions, Chidale has only three out of 12 titles this year. He has also slumped four places on the rankings. Now, he is on handicap-five.
Chidale, who turns 24 on December 19, said yesterday that his NBS Bank golf triumph on Saturday, is the beginning of his return to form.
“I must admit, this has been the toughest season in my eight-year golfing career. I used to knock off at 4pm last year, but I now go home at 6pm. This has affected my form because I do not go for training regularly,” he said.
Following his recent triumph, Chidale has qualified for the end of year NBS Bank Mug of Mugs Championships slated for next month.
According to NBS Bank marketing and public relations manager Timothy Ngwira, apart from thanking the golfers for being customers of the bank, the contest last weekend aimed at raising awareness about their newly introduced NBS Bank Millionaire Promotion.
“This promotion will see our clients who deposit money and leave it for a month in their accounts winning monthly prizes and the ultimate K1 million prize. Current and savings account holders can leave at least K20 000 (about $40) for a month while fixed deposit holders should do it with K200 000,” said Ngwira.
