VINCENT Byamukama returns to his home course in Entebbe this weekend hoping to become the first person to win the JBG Golf Open twice.
With two of the previous winners Deo Akope and Stephen Kasaija having turned professional, 2005 champion Byamukama has a perfect opportunity to have his name etched twice on the floating trophy that the club has kept for 11 years.
If Byamukama wins this weekend, he will move one step close to taking the trophy for keeps.
JBG Guaff officials Winyi Mugamba and Hans-Werner Hill raised the tempo yesterday when they unveiled unique trophies and other prizes that will be up for grabs in the two-day tournament.
While handing over the prizes to Entebbe Golf Club captain Alex Rwego, Mugamba reiterated JBGâ€™s commitment to funding the tournament.
â€œItâ€™s a great pleasure for JBG to sponsor the tournament for the 11th year and we will continue doing so. This clearly strengthens JBGâ€™s relationship with the golf fraternity in Uganda,â€ Mugamba said.
The stable-ford full handicap format tournament has attracted over 100 golfers. The professionals will compete for sh3m in cash prizes.
