By William Muwonge in Lugazi VETERAN golfer Juma Biramahire produced a brilliant display on Sunday to win the Kim’s Open for the second time. The handicap 8 Kampala player carded a 36-hole 133 nett at the par 65 Lugazi Golf Club course curved out of a hilly terrain. Biramahire beat another handicap 8 entrant, Jinja’s Edison Kasaija on countback. Biramahire brought Sunday’s best score of 63, cutting eight strokes off his round of 71 on Saturday to triumph again after his 2000 success. Last year’s winner Gabriel Muhwezi also carded 63, nine strokes better than Saturday’s score of 72 for 135 but surrendered the title. Biramahire sunk four birdies on Sunday. “The course is so tight, I avoided long shots, I am glad the strategy worked,” the grey-haired winner from Kampala said. Day-one leader, 19-year old Denis Anguyo, cracked, carding 72 on Sunday for a two-day aggregate of 137. Margaret Turyamubugana maintained her day-one lead to take the ladies title at 143. Monica Ntege at 147 and Alice Kego at 150 were also a level above the rest. Guest of honour was visiting Malawi Parliament Speaker Sam Mpasu. Leading results: Overall winner-J. Biramahire 133; Group A (h/c 0-9) E. Kasaija 133, H. Kabuye 135, D. Anguyo 137; Group B (h/c 10-18) G. Muhwezi 135, D. Mugumya 136, Tukesiga 137; gross-J. Waigo 144; guests-W. Bateyo 140, E. Tumusiime 142 c/b G. Tinyinondi. Ladies: M. Turyamubugana 143, M. Ntege 147, A. Kego 150. ends
