TNM has introduced a match-play tournament to run for a month at Blantyre Sports Club. Unlike stroke-play, in which the unit of scoring is the total number of strokes taken over one or more rounds of golf, matchplay scoring consists of individual holes won, halved or lost.
Some 80 golfers, comprising 64 men and 16 women, are expected to participate in the match-play. TNM Chief Officer Consumer (Services), Dan Makata, said they were proud to be associated with golf having supported the sport for 10 years.
“We have been sponsoring golf for quite a long time and being back to Blantyre feels like being home. This year, we wanted to change the format of play. “We have been doing single day tournaments and this time around, we decided to introduce match-play that can run for over a month as golfers would be required to qualify to the next round.
“This is just the starting point. We want to give golfers as much golf as possible. TNM will be there to support golfers,” Makata said.
The match-play qualifier comes barely two weeks after the company hosted another golf tournament at Zomba Golf Club under TNM’s digital transformation campaign.
“TNM’s digital transformation drive has gathered momentum. With our pioneering of the 4G/ LTE network platform, we are now on course to complete various technology upgrades that are complementary to our 4G/ LTE mobile internet platform,” he said.
