A team of three golfers defied all odds to lift the Deloitte Golf Day Championship at Mbawa Golf Club at Bvumbwe, Thyolo District on Friday.
It was an event that required each participating side to field four golfers.
However, Vizenge Kumwenda, Ben Ndau and Bob Reushaw failed to get their fourth playing partner.
Despite the handicap, the trio scored 152 points to win the championship.
Runners-up, featuring Lucas Kondowe and Don Whayo among other golfers, collected 145 points whereas the third-placed side, which had Phillip Madinga on board, finished with 140 points.
Fourth-placed side, comprising Hudson Kantwanje and Bashir Shariff among others, scored 139 points.
Fifth-placed side, with players such as Wilma Chalulu and Gabriel Kambale, ended with 134 points.
Kumwenda said they supported each other to compensate for the absence of the fourth player.
“We realised that if we had to win, we had to play as a team and support each other. That is what we did. We also made sure that the one playing the yellow ball should not have pressure. We would like to thank Deloitte for this tournament. We had fun,” he said.
Deloitte Managing Partner, Nkondola Uka, said they organised the tournament to enable them interact with their clients.
“It is a process whereby we should know our clients better. We feel it is a win-win situation because we discussed business issues with our clients.
“We are impressed with the turn-up because if you look at it you will discover that we had clients from different sectors, which is a reflection of our clients’ base.
“As Deloitte, our intention is to deliver quality services to our clients so that we add value to their businesses in matters to do with their accounting and tax. You also remember that as Deloitte, we run a vibrant consultancy business,” he said.
Speaking earlier, Deloitte’s Tip-offs Anonymous Senior Manager, Vanda Phekani, said they strive to help their clients become leaders.
