Gabriel Kambale strolls to championship


Renowned golfer, Gabriel Kambale, shed no sweat to lift the Blantyre Sports Club closed championship following the absence of opponents in the division.

Kambale, playing off handicap four, posted 161 strokes during the two-day championship that ended on Sunday at Blantyre venue.

The absence of the players was a concern to the organisers. Nonetheless, Kambale said he was happy to win.


“This was the easiest Blantyre closed championship I have ever played because there was no competition or anything. As you can see, we have more people in division A but few people in championship division,” he said.

Kambale, who is a former Golf Union of Malawi (GUoM) President, said he was worried with the shrinking number of golfers in the main division.

BSC Golf Captain, Sam Mwale, said they would sensitise golfers on the need for improving their handicap.


“Despite the setback in championship division, the tournament was successful because we had 48 golfers. You should remember that it was a closed event and it is on the calendar of Golf Union of Malawi. It might interest you to know that we are the only club that has managed to hold the event,” he said.

During the championship, Eric Kazembe, with 178 strokes, won the B division title whereas Honest Chirwa was second with 179 strokes. Davlin Chokazinga finished third with 185 strokes.

Adril Guarino won the A division championship with 169 strokes while Levi Kapito was second with 167 strokes. Lester Tandwe scored 170 stokes to finish on third position.

Paul Araujo hit the longest ball on hole number two whereas Guarino celebrated a memorable weekend after also winning the nearest to the pin on hole number one.
