Nabir Gaffar won the championship of the inaugural Worldwide Diagnostics Limited Golf Tournament held at Country Club Limbe on Saturday.
Competition in the men’s section was stiff as a count-back tie-breaker was used to separate three top players.
Gaffar collected 39 points, just like second and third-placed Nelson Mkwende and Anthony Kasunda, who were counted out to their respective positions.
“It was really tight and that it went down to the wire just confirms how tough it was. I was inspired by the senior golfers. They were a source of motivation. Let me also thank the sponsors for organising such a wonderful tournament,” Gaffar said.
In the ladies’ section, Myungbook Shim won the championship with 40 points while Ireen Mphatso finished on second position with 37 points
In the senior golfers’ category, John Magombo emerged champion whereas Kingsley Chimdima Mhango was counted out to finish on second position.
Speaking on the sponsors’ behalf, Sumant Nayak said they organised the tournament so as to enlighten the golfers about the company’s services, which include X-rays, ultrasound, mammography ACT and radiographic procedures.
“The turnout was also impressive. We had a field of 55 golfers. We look forward to hosting more tournaments in future,” he said.
Convener of the tournament, Chapusa Phiri commended Worldwide Diagnostics Limited for sponsoring the tournament.
Worldwide Diagnostics Limited is a radiology diagnostic centre situated at Mwaiwathu Private Hospital in Blantyre.
