Zim on rise in FBC golf champs

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Sport - Sikhum­buzo Moyo in Vic­to­ria Falls

HOSTS Zim­babwe put up a de­cent third round show in which they scored the day’s sec­ond best score that re­sulted in them dis­lodg­ing Egypt from sec­ond po­si­tion head­ing into to­day’s fi­nal day of the 2017 FBC All-Africa Golf Cham­pi­onship at the Ele­phant Hills Golf Course.

Hav­ing started the day on third with 440 points, the David Amm cap­tained hosts put up a strong fight yes­ter­day with Amm card­ing 70 for a two un­der-par fin­ish while com­pa­tri­ots stormed into the in­di­vid­ual Top 10 with a score of par 72. Tatenda Makunde and Rasheed Mo­hameed carded 76 and 75 re­spec­tively to see Zim­babwe end Day Three on 658 points, 22 off tour­na­ment favourites South Africa who had Mal­com Mitchell and Matt Saulez card­ing 73 and 76 re­spec­tively. It was how­ever not a good day on the course for the South Africans whose day’s score was 216, down from Day Two’s 209.

It looks promis­ing for Team Zim­babwe head­ing into to­day’s fi­nal round but they must be wor­ried about Re­union who are 14 points be­hind.

On the in­di­vid­ual score sheets, South Africa’s Mitchell main­tained a de­cent lead over Egypt’s Issa Abu El Ela and Zim­babwe’s Amm who are tied on three un­der while the South African is a dis­tant eight un­der up­front.
