After registering his first win of the season, Becca Mwanja is determined to reproduce similar form in the remaining tournaments including the Uganda Open in order to bag the Nile Special USPA Golfer of the year award.
The National team captain produced one of the best performance of his career, returning 42 stable ford points to win the Commercial Bank of Africa (CBA) Captain’s prize tournament at Kitante on Saturday.
“This is my first win of the year, but my target is to win the overall golfer of the year accolade. I’m putting in more individual training time to improve my driving and short game,” Mwanja said.
“But from Saturday’s performance I realised the driving is now sorted having received tips from professional golfer Brian Toolit. I will now work on my techinique for the short game which should take me a short time,” Mwanja noted.
First improving lady golfer Wendy Angudeyo was the toast of the ladies competition returning 37 points to top the ladies category.
“What a great and humbling golfing weekend it has been,” Angudeyo reacted after winning her third tournament at Kitante.
She will now be praying for similar form in the Mayombo Open slated for this weekend in Fort Portal, the Eldoret Ladies Open and the Singleton Golf Challenge where she is going to participate in the next eight weeks.
Hassan Kiyemba and Eva Magala were the top perormers in the men and ladies group A. Joseph Bagabo in whose honour the tournament was played will serve another term as captain.
