Vincent Cofie believes that a number of factors worked for him as he cruised home as winner of the GRIDCO Classic Golf tournament staged at the Tema Country Golf Club. Great shot, solid drive, impressive swings and an improved putt made his win possible. The young but avid golfer explained that, he sees every game as a unique one and applies the same level of importance to each game. Playing off handicap 2, he recorded four back-nine birdies and one front-nine birdie. This feat requires a lot of mettle.
How he manages to pull the pedal on his games, Vincent conceded that, “I practice a lot, I play about 36 holes a day when I practice and though the condition is very tough out there, I always manage to improve my drive and let the game stay on my mind.” He finished the day on 67 net, front nine one-over 37 and back nine 32.
The CIS sponsored golfer considers that his win will sure be a super boost to the Ecobank Golf Cup tournament as he looks forward to register another laurel. Trailed to second position in the Men Group A was E.T Mensah when he recorded a net score of 70 same as Wisborn G. Mensah but was separated on countback.
In the Men Group B, E. Mensah Darko came first with a net score of 71, followed by I. Bentil with net score of 73. T. Sampson was third with net score of 75.
In the Ladies’ Group A, Florence Etwi Barimah pulled it off the grand way when she beat veteran golfer, Mona Captan to second position with a net score of 73. The evergreen Mona, despite good efforts at hitting a round changing approach shots, did not hit the ultimate but was still grateful and hopeful for subsequent games.
Speaking to Lady Scientific, she explained that, she managed to play some impressive shots from a few difficult positions but in all she stayed clear off the rough. The exciting finish at The GRIDCo Classic Golf Tourney has clearly capped a revitalizing week for Lady Scientific and will go into the Ecobank game with same zeal.
P. Galley came first in the Ladies Group B as she returned a net score of 78. Beaten to second position was Grace Amoah who returned a net score of 84.
Some officials of GRIDCo Ltd were on hand at the Tema Country Golf Club to present stunning prizes to winners in the various groups. Among them were Chief Executive, Charles Darku, Dr. Thomas Ansah, Board Member, Wg. Cdr. (Rtd) Samuel J.A Allotey and Ing. Bernard Tawiah Modey.
