Zim ready for Orange Bowl

HARARE - Zimbabwean junior golfers head into the Orange Bowl Junior Golf Championship with a spring in their step after showing some impressive patches during the American Junior that ended on Monday.

The 51st Junior Orange Bowl International Golf Championship will take place which takes place at the Baltimore Golf Course in Florida from Friday to Tuesday.

Going into the prestigious tournament Kieran Vincent and Mbongeni Maphosa will hope to build on their American Junior strides.

The pair were the country’s highest placed golfers at the tournament after tying for 15th with a gross score of nine over 225.

Vincent had rounds of 77, 76 and 72 whilst Maphosa signed for 76, 73 and 76.

Stuart Krog, who dominated the Zimbabwe Junior Golf Association tournaments to finish the year as the highest ranked junior local golfer, had a not so impressive outing.

The 18-year-old finished tied at 23 with a gross score of 15 over par 231.

Krog will, however, hope his second round 69, which was the third lowest score on the day will breathe some confidence into his game.

Tarisiro Fundira closed way down the perking order tied at 36.

Fundira negotiated the 6895 yards course with rounds of 89 84 and 88.

Fundira and Mbongeni are playing in their private capacity whilst Krog and Vincent are competing for Zimbabwe by virtue of coming first and second on the ZGJA order of merit.
