Port Harcourt set for International Pairs


Golfers from the South-South and South-East will be in action from August 3 to 4  at Port Harcourt Club   for  the International Pairs regional qualifiers.

 Fifteen  slots are up for grabs.

The pair of Tim Ayomike and Akeem Lawal  won the  Lagos competition featuring players from the South-West. Forty-one pairs participated  in the qualifiers at Ikoyi Club 1938.

 Ayomike and Lawal  grossed a total of 66-stableford points to lead the pack of 20 teams that made the finals.

Other winners in the contest  are  S. Winston and Emmanuel Oluoha (62-points), Evelyn Oyome and Biodun Oyewoga (61-points), Amaechi Ndili and Njide Ndili (59-points), Joe Oduah and Raphael Adewale (58-points) and  Charles Idowu and Keneath Osuji (58-points).

Meanwhile, Ayomike and Lawal  have restated their determination to win  the coveted International Pairs trophy in Portugal.   The pair  said  they  are confident that they will win the national final  in Uyo and represent Nigeria in the world final.

The winners will be given an all-expense paid trip to Portugal in November.

Chief Executive Officer of Falcon Golf Development Company Remi Olukoya  said the number of qualifiers was  increased from 15 pairs to 20  because  of the number of participants and good showing by most of the players. He added  that because of the good performance of most of the players, the cut-off of 50-stableford points was eventually arrived at.

Air France, one of the  sponsors of the competition, promised to continue to support the event.

Other supporters of the event are The Paradise Abuja, Eroton, Dangote Flours, Zenera, Air peace, 9mobile, GTI Capitals, Sims Nigeria, Pepsi and Grand Oak.
