Golfer of the year 2019 and national team captain, Joseph Cwinya-ai beat Habib Kisande after a three-hole sudden death playoff to successfully defend the Venus Open at Tooro Golf Club on Saturday.


Both players had tied on 67 gross, in the one-day annual tournament, before Cwinya-ai won the three-hole playoff on holes 16, 17 and 18.

He birdied hole-No-16, before registering subsequent pars on the other two holes whereas Kisande scored bogeys throughout.

Following the victory, he has warned his opponents to expect more from him starting with the Kitante Open that starts on Wednesday.

Chwinya-ai said that his victory has given him the confidence to continue training harder so that he can win more trophies.

"I'm happy that I have been crowned the champion of the Venus open. It has not been easy, but I have managed to win the tournament," Chwenyai said.

"I started off badly with two bogeys, which I followed with 3 birdies and 4 pars on the first nine. On the back-nine, I got 2 birdies and 7 pars for the tie but there wasn't much competition,"

"Next is the Kitante open where I'm also going to give my best. My opponents should stand warned that I'm in an uncompromising mood.

"I want to exceed what I achieved last year, so I'm prepared for anyone that crosses my path," Cwinya-ai stated.

Mackline Nsenga who recently won the Toro open tournament said that though she had lost to Lucia Alinda in the Ladies Group A it will not deter her from practicing more for other tournaments.

Losing the Venus open is not the end of the road I'm training more harder to ensure that I win the other upcoming events on the golf calendar," Nsenga said.

John Tumusiime and Lucia Alinda were the best in the men and ladies' Group A respectively while Johnson Dairo and Albert Mwebaze were top of Groups B and C where J Rowland and Christian Karamagi managed runners up slots.

Peace Kabasweka was a double winner on the day taking the runners up position in the ladies Group A as well as the longest-drive prizes.

Peter Obita and A.K Mayanja beat Gad Musasizi and Emmnauel Basaliza in the seniors' categories.

Andrew Biryabarema the club captain for Toro golf club thanked the sponsors for sponsoring the tournament.
