Class, quality and excellence dawned on the Mzuzu Golf course as 33 golfers wrestled for championship courtesy of a day long Airtel sponsored golf tournament.
The blazing sun that scotched a great deal of the Saturday only powered participants to sweat it out in pursuit of sweet victory.
However, Dan Mazoe carried the day for emerging champion as well as for banging the nearest to pin accolade.
“This has been an amazing race, I must admit that competition was tough but hey, here I am, happy and excited fully. Thanks to Airtel for this tournament,” said Mazoe whilst holding firm his top prizes, thus a trophy, ipad mini, Greg Norman stand bag and a 2GB memory stick.
Youthful Godfrey Chisale came second earning himself a trophy, Taylor made burner, fairwood and a memory stick whilst Yasin Phiri was third.
In the ladies category, Ruth Mvula was top of the notch and Airtel spoiled her with a trophy. Wilson stand bag, ipad mini and a 2GB memory stick.
“I wish more and more corporate players could be spoiling us this way. I am so thankful and I appeal to men to empower their wives into golf players so that we grow this sport in the women’s league as well,” she said amidst applauds from men who dominated the venue in numbers.
In his remarks, Airtel Malawi Managing Director Heiko Schlittke said the Mzuzu golf tourney was a completion of the golf crusade that Airtel had undertaken recently.
“We have been so impressed by the golfers across Malawi. We appreciate their participation in our tournaments and this demonstrates the golfers’ high level commitment towards uplifting our investment in the sport of golf,” said Schlittke who teed off the tourney.
He further pledged that next year, Airtel was posed to offer the best of the top innovative products and services on the menu of mobile telecommunications industry.
During the prize presentation ceremony, Airtel also donated a MK150, 000 cheque to the Mzuzu Golf Club.
