Teeing off with Tavenganiswa Mabikacheche

Last week’s major tournament was the Saturday’s Marko Chimusoro memorial golf day which was played at Falcon Golf Club.

This was in remembrance of the late Falcon Golf Club resident professional Marko Chimusoro who passed away last year.

Golfers who participated included Zimbabwe Professional Golfers’ Association members of which Marko Chimusasa was a member.

The competition format was medal and there were four divisions namely: A, B, C and Professionals. The results were as follows:

A Division-1 C Magwenzi – 71 net; 2 L Masendeke – 72; 3 M Munetsi – 72; 4. E Hungwe – 73; 5 C Johns – 73. B Division- 1 N Janyure – 56 net; 2 H Muyambo – 68; 3 A Chikandanina – 72; 4 L T Chawota – 73; 5 B O Makumbu – 74.
C Division- 1 J D Mahachi – 70 net; 2 P Masuku – 74; 3 D Chawota – 74; 4 A V M Nyahungwa – 74; 5. S Zingapeta – 76.

Professionals Division-1 R Jack on a gross score of 69; 2 T Charamba – 71; 3 N Muyambo – 71.
The Sunday game was individual Stableford which was sponsored by the club. The winners were 1 S Chiriga – 41 points; 2 S Chiminya – 39; 3 L T Chawota – 33.

At Hillside Golf Club (Mutare): The club’s Wednesday Club was the major tournament of the week unlike at most clubs in Harare where Saturday is a major competition day.

Most club members at Hillside take part in the Wednesday competition and sponsors who want to make mileage sponsor this day.

However, Saturday is always available if there is a particular sponsor who wants to sponsor it otherwise Saturdays are normally quiet with members just playing friendly games.

Last Wednesday’s competition was individual Stableford which was kindly sponsored by The Big Five Syndicate.

The winners were 1 L Nyikadzino -40 points; 2 D Bunjira -39; 3 T Yatras -37. There were two longest drive and three nearest the pin prizes.

Winners of longest drives were hole number 9- M Chikwana; hole number 18 -J Sigaba. Nearest the pin winners were hole number 8- D. Bunjira; hole number 11- D Bunjira; hole number 17- L Nyikadzino.

It is worth observing that hitting them long does not necessarily end up with the winning score.

This may be an indication of how important the short game is in this game of golf.
At Ruwa Country Club, Wednesday Club competition was an individual Stableford and the winners were 1 B Chimoto – 38 points; 2 S Mubvunzi – 36 On Sunday the club hosted Mthwakazi Golf Society who had an individual Stableford competition.

The winners were 1 E Mlambo – 38 points; 2 L Sibanda – 37; 3 T Mpofu – 36; 4 E Mahlangu – 36; 5 M Mkanhla -35; 6 K Hokonya – 34; 7 C Washaya -34; 8 A Nyamudze – 34; 9 N Mpofu – 33; 10 J Nyakonda – 33; 11 C Hokonya – 33.
