The win is Otile’s first on home soil since returning for holiday in December

National team golfer Ronald Otile won a sudden death play-off against team mate Ronald Rugumayo, to win the Venus Open at Toro Club on Saturday.

The win is Otile’s first on home soil since returning for holiday in December, with Daniel Baguma, with whom they share colloge in South Africa.

Otile is undertaking a ‘Champ Elite Golf’ course designed to help people become serious professionals while Daniel Baguma, is pursuing a PGA Diploma Golf Course for both professionals and management of the game, at the University of Pretoria.

The two golfers are on holiday and will soon return for the R&A and UGU sponsored three-year course.

Otile beat Rugumayo on the first hole (hole No.16) of the sudden death where he got a birdie with Rugumayo registering a par to win the annual championship. They each got pars on the subsequent two holes.

Isiah Mwesige (65nett), Daniel Musinguzi (71nett) and Henry Kaliba (62nett) were the top performers in the men’s Groups A-C while Peace Kabasweka beat Jill Pinda to the women’s top prize in the ladies category.

Focus for the Toro Club golfers will now turn to the Toro versus Kigali duel due, February 18, at Mbarara Sports Club.
