Vincent's star on the rise

HARARE - Zimbabwe's teenage golf sensation Scott Vincent added another feather to his cap after scooping the Amateur Male Golfer of the Year at the inaugural Zimbabwe Golf Awards held at Chapman Golf Club last night.

This followed a sensational season for the United States Collegiate golfer who ended his junior season as one of 10 golfers to be named to the Ping All-America Team.

The night also belonged to 18-time PGA tour winner Nick Price, who shared the International Golf Ambassador award with Tony Johnstone and Brendon de Jonge.

The award for Price came barely 48 hours after the World Golf Hall of Fame inductee was retained as captain for the Presidents Cup’s International team.

The Presidents Cup will run from October 8 to 11, 2015, at the Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea, the first time it has been held in Asia.

Speaking to The Associated Press, Price was happy to get another chance to captain the International Team.

"I just want to thank the players who were on the team last year because without them, I don't think I'd be sitting here again," he said.
