Singleton Golf Match Play set for round III

With every passing round, this year’s Singleton Match Play Challenge gets tougher and more exciting.

Match Play is the true test of temperament, poise and calmness and ahead of this weekend’s third round of the competition, the match-ups are a genuine reflection of the golfers who know best how to handle pressure.

Take the pairing of Peace Kabasweka and Sheila Kesiime, for instance. The back-maker has always been the former but seeing how the two are former winners of the competition, they have developed a chemistry that makes them tough to beat.

“I like how we carry one another,” Kabasweka told The Observer. “Match Play golf is about getting the right partner, understanding him or her and then managing yourselves as a pairing when the pressure moments come.”

Kabasweka and Kesiima are marginal favourites against Jimmy Aiga and Johnson Dairo. Entebbe Club captain Serwano Walusimbi and Peter Magona have been drawn to play General George Owino and Sarah Nduhukire while Joseph Bogera and Kenneth Kiddu are up against Nelson Musinguzi and Rukia Nalwoga.

Saturday’s round is expected to draw a huge number of entrants after green fees were reduced from Shs 100,000 to Shs 50,000. The theme of the evening will be Soul and Old Skool.

There will be the customary subsidiary competitions for groups A, B and C that will include Longest Drive and Nearest-To-The-Pin.
