Daily Trust - - SPORT -

Joseph Har­vey, Prin­ci­pal, St. David Mark Golf Academy and Coun­try Club, Akpegede, Benue, on Sun­day promised medals haul at the IBB Golf Ju­nior Open Cham­pi­onships later this month.

Speak­ing on the prepa­ra­tions for the IBB Ju­nior Open Cham­pi­onships sched­ules for a yetto-be-an­nounced date this month at the pres­ti­gious golf course in Abuja, Har­vey said the academy would en­sure a good out­ing.

“We want to win ev­ery­thing at stake dur­ing the cham­pi­onships. We have been in the fore­front of golf acad­e­mies in Nige­ria and we want to keep the record.

“We have had good out­ings in the past and we want to bet­ter last year’s per­for­mance. We are train­ing hard for these cham­pi­onships,’’ he told NAN.

“We will be storm­ing the cham­pi­onships with 25 play­ers and eight of­fi­cials; they are the best hands that we have in the academy.’’

“We will en­sure that we sweep the medals ta­ble which has al­ways been our trade­mark when­ever we at­tend any com­pe­ti­tion.’’

The tour­na­ment which will tee off at the pres­ti­gious IBB Golf and Coun­try Club is open to young golfers be­tween the ages of five and 19.

The par­tic­i­pants are drawn across the states of the fed­er­a­tion. (NAN)
