Speaking after receiving their prizes, both Sibande and Mbilizi were short of words to describe their victories.
“Am very excited to win this competition. When I was coming to play, I had one thing in mind, to finish with over 45 points. I thought reaching that mark would put me in a great position to win.
“However, I didn’t start very well but later managed to produce winning performances to be on the driving sit. This was on my return and my playing partners too gave me good competition which really motivated me,” said Sibande.
For her part, Mbilizi said she had less competition but nevertheless was happy for coming out top.
“There were only 8 ladies at this competition. I guess this was because of another competition at Blantyre Sports club. However am happy because winning is something that every golfer would like to enjoy. I had a burdy at some point which gave me advantage to claim the top prize,” said Mbilizi.
