James Chimwaza triumphs in Nico Seniors golf
As the revival of seniors’ golf in the country continues, former Golf Union of Malawi president, James Chimwaza, rekindled his glory days when he won a second edition of seniors’ golf tournament at Country Club Limbe on Saturday.
The Nico General Insurance-sponsored tournament attracted 83 golfers, 20 of them the seniors.
Fourteen-handicap Chimwaza posted a net of 73 points to beat second-placed John Magombo, who counted out Tony Kandiero on a net of 77.
Chimwaza thanked Nico General for the sponsorship, saying it was a big motivation to the seniors.
“The seniors uphold the integrity of the game, therefore, it is a pleasure to get such an honour. We hope to have more tournaments this year so that seniors’ golf can be revived,” he said.
Nico General Insurance chief executive officer, Eric Chapola, said sponsoring seniors’ golf was good for the sport and business.
“Most of these senior golfers are senior company managers that have good connections. This interaction will help us get some good business,” he said.
