TZ Ladies Open: Eaton ties with Nakalembe

TANZANIA Ladies Golf Open Championship continues to light up Dar Gymkhana Club course as Tanzanian Angel Eaton fought hard to tie with Ugandan Irene Nakalembe after the end of 36 holes in the city on Saturday.

Nakalembe who was the overnight leader after grossing 73 strokes on Friday, lost steadiness when she grossed 78 strokes on Saturday, collecting aggregate 151 strokes.

That helped Eaton from a Tanzania People’s Defense Forces (TPDF) Lugalo club who had 75 gross on Friday to settle up the score when she returned 76 strokes, that gave her 151 aggregate score. This makes a tough final day when golfers play their last 18 holes today.

Tanzanian Madina Iddi was placed third with 152 aggregate strokes. She was a shot behind to leaders. Iddi from Arusha Gymkhana Club (AGC), who also serves as the Tanzania Ladies Golf Union (TLGU) honourary secretary started with 78 strokes in the first day, but she calmed her nerves to return 74 strokes on Saturday.

She stressed that she had tough day in the first round as she could not play well especially at par-3 holes.

“Thank God this time around I manage to correct some mistakes, Day one could not give me good score at par three, I got bogeys, I had to rethink and things went well today (yesterday),” she noted. But Iddi said the competition is still very tough going into the final today.

Neema Olomi also from AGC had good second round when she carded 75 strokes to stamp 154 aggregate score.

She had jump to fourth as fifth place went to Lugalo Ladies section Captain, Hawa Wanyeche with aggregate 156 (78,78).

Kenyan Mercy Nyanchama who had 76 in the opening day, could not repeat the feat as she grossed 81 strokes yesterday.

She was placed sixth 157 aggregate strokes while the defending champion, Ugandan Peace Kabasweka who started with 78 came out with 84 strokes to end sixth with 162 strokes.

Others in the top ten are Ugandan Martha Babirye aggregate 163 (79,84), Vicky Elias of Lugalo 163 (80,83) and Ayne Magombe aggregates 164 (80,84) of DGC.

Kabasweka is defending Champions; she won the 2019 the title at TPC Moshi Club, Kilimanjaro.
