Zim golfers leave for Japan

HARARE – Zimbabwe’s leading junior golfers are optimistic of leaving a mark at the Toyota World Junior Golf Championship in Nagoya, Japan.

The 72 holes Junior Golf World Cup, is set to tee off in Toyota City on June 16, with Zimbabwe’s hopes firmly pinned on fledgling stars Jack Allard, Kieran Vincent, Justin Kersten and David Amm.

The quartet left the country yesterday for the junior golf showcase which follows a four-players-count-three scores format.

“Zimbabwe has always been on the world stage when it comes to golf and we will definitely make a mark as well. We have a very strong team of disciplined and talented players who can stand against the best in the world of junior golfers,” said Zimbabwe Junior Golf Association president Brian Maphosa.

Adding: “We have a strong team which has excelled in their own individual capacities in various local and international tournaments.”

Zimbabwe qualified for the tournament after finishing second at the All-Africa Junior Golf Championships at Lusaka Golf Club in Zambia in May.

The tournament was won by South Africa who claimed their 17th All-Africa Junior Golf Championships title with an emphatic 55-stroke victory at Lusaka Golf Club in Zambia.
