Lesotho Times - - Sport - Mo­halenyane Phakela

Motlatsi Ra­mafole came out vic­to­ri­ous at the Club Monthly Mug Golf tour­na­ment held at Maseru Golf Course on sun­day.

Ra­mafole beat 39 other con­tenders to win the tour­na­ment bankrolled by First Na­tional Bank (FNB).

Prizes were also awarded to other play­ers who made the top 10. in an in­ter­view with Le­sotho Times af­ter the prize-giv­ing cer­e­mony, Ra­mafole said it was through con­stant prac­tice that he be­came more pro­fi­cient in the sport.

“i was prac­tic­ing three times a week pre­par­ing for this tour­na­ment be­cause the other play­ers are very com­pet­i­tive.

“i be­lieve play­ing in a con­sis­tent man­ner and be­ing fo­cused on the game has given me lever­age over the oth­ers.

“this is my third Mug this year as i won in Jan­uary and March and i am go­ing to keep on prac­tic­ing and play­ing well to main­tain the win­ning streak as golf is a mus­cle­mem­ory game,” he said.

oh his part, FNB Deputy Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Of­fi­cer, Mopeli Mokhachane, who came sec­ond in the tour­na­ment, thanked all the play­ers, who made the event pos­si­ble.

“i am grate­ful for the turnout as we do not nor­mally have as many peo­ple com­ing for the sun­day games. i am very thrilled to see your sup­port,” Mokhachane said.

He also said FNB was com­mit­ted to the long-term spon­sor­ship of golf in the coun­try.
