The handicap-26 player, who has seen a steady rise in his game since starting out about a year and a half was among golfers who braved a morning downpour before winning.

 "The game was a bit tricky especially on the front nine but it improved a bit on the back after the rain had stopped and I had dried up a bit. I was hitting the ball very well though my putting was a bit shaky but I managed to overcome that and I was able to play well until the end," Bagyenyi who claimed his first overall trophy since his first mug six months ago.

Patrick Mugisha (31pts) edged Michael Tumusiime (29pts) in Group A while Emmanuel Tayebwa and Johnson Dairo were the top players in Group B.

Sean Kinsella topped Group C with 36 points, one more than Andrew Arinaitwe who finished second while Irene Nakalembe (31 pts)  also edged Peace Kabasweka (29pts) in the ladies Group A while Lydia Mutesi (23pts) was the best in Group B where Peace Muyege managed 13 points.
