HERMAN Mutaawe held off a late charge by 19-year-old Vincent Byamukama to win the Kigezi Crane Bank Easter Golf Open on Easter Sunday.

Despite a closing round 74, Mutaawe still won with an aggregate of 142 in the 36-hole amateur event that attracted over 70 competitors.

A final round 70 by Byamukama, the best score of the day in Kabale, fell three shots short of disposing Ugarose-sponsored Mutaawe, who captured a third Uganda Golf Union stroke-play championship event victory.
“After leading by five strokes on day one, I knew I would win unless I played the worst game of my life," Mutaawe commented.

Kabale Mayor Pius Ruhemurana surprised the strong field when he squeezed into third position, eight strokes behind the winner, while George Olayo was upstaged on his home course for the second year running.
