With 16 contestants teeing it up in the 3rd Annual Safari Boston Golf Championship Tournament, how else could it be except a genuine success!
The 3rd Annual Safari Boston Golf Championship Tournament brought another year of unprecedented growth for the third year in a row. This tournament has been heralded as a growing success, a new record high turnout, with players coming from, 4 different countries from across the Globe (Haiti, Uganda, USA, Kenya). This was a great exhibition for all the top 16 players. The strongest field ever for our Championship. We are all so happy to have had such a charming and delightful diverse group of players playing. Our hope is that we have an even larger field for next year.
After the pre-tournament activities were history, one of the greatest Golf Tournament’s amongst the NE diaspora got underway Saturday morning 9/26/2015 at the well renowned Pembroke Country Club .
The Championship Flight was well filled with entries. When all the groups finished playing, the pre-tournament favorite, William Emase of Abington MA, finished an amazing net score round of 76 for the low round of the day; Francis Kibugi of Brockton, came in with a net score of 80; Mark Ingram of Boston had a net score of 84; Pedro Belizaire of Stoughton had a solid round of net score of 84; Tony Ngari of Randolph, Lawi Kimama of Randolph, Paul Ekudu of Uganda, all had a net score of 83, Wycliffe Cherry of Brockton came in with a net score of 92, Phil Brown of Boston with a net score of 89, Freddie Chege of Stoneham came in with a net score of 91, Chris Esikumo of Brockton with a net score of 92 & James Irungu of Bridgewater with a net score of 100.
Our tournament has grown each year for the past three years with a lot of new entrants entering this year’s tournament. The tournament had a strong field and some great talent this year. The quality of players we had was a delight to the Tournament Directors. The players such as the ones mentioned above have given the Annual Safari Boston Golf Championship Tournament a touch of class and talent that is a sure sign of becoming a quality annual Tournament. We anticipate this event will expand into a great diaspora and friends of the diaspora Tournament. We are aware the players who played in this tournament have always had a good challenge and an exciting time while playing Championship Golf.
The tournament favorite was William Emase, the defending champion seeking to be the first to successfully defend his title and was the favorite to kick off the annual tournament’s domination.No golfer had won the Annual Safari Boston Golf Championship Tournament more than once in the tournament history. And no player had ever captured the Monthly mug and gone on to win the title two years in a row. In the 3rd annual tournament, William Emase who putted his way to a masterful net score of 76 to win by four did both. What happens when a laid back attitude and a near-flawless golf swing are combined? You get William Emase, a black haired, tall, black-eyed free swinger from Abington, MA who captured the Annual Safari Boston Golf Championship Tournament.
But some promising and upcoming Safari Boston golfers hope to change that in the 4th Annual Tournament next year. Francis Kibugi was the 1st runner up. With the two ( Lawi Kimama and Tony Ngari) so closely bunched, the tournament’s 2nd runner up would be decided by which golfer had the lower score on the number 1 handicap hole #5, and that golfer turned out to be Tony Ngari.
Chris Esikumo took home the PM award, Chipping and Longest drive awards went to Wycliffe Cherry, Best putts award went to William Emase, Closest to the pin award went to Lawi Kimama, and most improved award went to Phil Brown.At the formal announcement.
Everyone congratulated the winners and then drowned their sorrows over late lunch afterwards.
