The Ugandan golf team at the Africa Zone V Africa Golf Championship in Swaziland takes on Mauritius in the quarter finals today after starting strongly on the opening day.

Ronald Otile shot an opening two-over-par 74 in the opening round-stroke play qualifier, to ensure Uganda qualified for the quarter finals in third place behind South Africa and Swaziland.

Adolf Muhumuza (75gross) and Ronald Rugumayo (77) were the other scorers for Uganda who finished day one with a total score of 226. Daniel Baguma returned a non-scoring 78 but the Ugandans are still in the running for the championship. The best three scores count to the final standings.

Today and tomorrow, the Ugandans are going to be involved in a country versus country head to head knockout match-play competition, before the final round to determine the winner.

The top eight and bottom eight teams are going to be split into two divisions, with each country permitted just one team per division.

The participating countries include the host nation Swaziland, defending champions Uganda, Angola, Botswana, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Mauritius, Mozambique, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

South Africa has dominated the Africa Zone VI Golf Tournament in the past 21 years since the country was readmitted to international golf in 1995.

They have won the tournament outright since with the exception of 1998 when the team tied with Zimbabwe in Swaziland but won on a count out of holes up.

Kenya, who won in Botswana in 2010, briefly interrupted their clean sweep with Uganda also winning on home soil last year.
