Kampala. Emmanuel Moko regrets his inconsistency in the Tusker Malt (TML) Golf Series.
The Entebbe-bred single-handicapper returned 39 stableford points on count-back to win men’s Group A category at the sixth leg of the TML Series at the Lake Victoria Serena Resort Kigo on Saturday.
“Not bad,” the handicap two player said upon picking his prize during the colorful prize giving ceremony at the 19th hole lit up by MTN and Tusker.
“I found the course very easy because the conditions were perfect for me to play. So I didn’t put in much calculation,” added the man whose pairing with Samuel Kato yielded 42 points on count-back to qualify for the final round next at Kitante.
Moko was impressed with his show, adding to his 28 and 27 respective points picked during the Jinja and Palm Valley legs. “I regret because I had a bigger opportunity to win and lead the Series. The other courses are quite easier to play than Kigo,” he added. Meanwhile, Paul Ndyaguma was a class apart as he stretched his Series’ lead to 133 points after returning 41 points to win Men’s Group C off handicap 18.
“I should be closer to the ticket now. Eyes on the ball, head down and no letting pressure through to me,” said the man in lead for the coveted prize which is a fully-paid trip to the Pattaya Islands Golf Resort in Thailand. Like Ndyaguma, Peace Kabasweka as well continues to lead the ladies’ charts after returning 31 points off handicap seven to win Group A.
“It was good,” said Kabasweka who took her overall tally to 193 points.
