COMING off victory in the Uganda Golf Open last weekend, Vincent Byamukama reckons he can extend his success to the Marsh Chairman’s Cup in Entebbe this weekend.
Byamukama, who beat Kenyan Richard Ainley by six strokes to pocket sh5.3m in the professional category of the tournament last Saturday, immediately expressed desire to add another win.
No let up
“This is not the end. I am already focused on the Chairman’s Cup. It is the same course and I will face the usual competition. I will give my best and hopefully take a big chunk of that money,” Byamukama stated.
The professionals will share out sh5m in prize money.
The tournament in honour of Entebbe chairman Innocent Kihiika will start with the professional event that tees off tomorrow. The amateurs will play on Saturday in the event that has been sponsored by Marsh to the tune of sh80m.
The four-club limit
The Entebbe Chairman’s Cup is not your usual tournament as competitors are restricted to using only four clubs including the putter.
Besides the putter players are required to pick three other clubs out of the remaining 13 in a golf bag.
