A select group of scratch golfers from across the nation began their quest to represent Ghana in the 2019 All African Golf Challenge to be held this coming October, in Mauritius.

The Ghana Golf Association is tasked with fielding a 4-man team for the main event.

To this end, the top six finishers in the recently concluded Asantehene Golf Championship’s scratch division plus by two wild-card qualifiers took to Achimota Golf Course this past weekend to begin doing battle for one of four coveted spots on the traveling team.

Those participating in qualification rounds are 2019 Asantehene Champion, Sampson Assorgbah and the top 5 runner-ups, Alfred Kwame, Kofi Yeboah, Frank Avorsey, Christopher Mbii and Micheal Boateng.

They are joined by two wild-card qualifiers, Yao Dogbe and Isaac Kuttey. The participants will play a total of four rounds. Everyone’s best three scores will be used to identify those composing the 4-man team.

Once identified the team will then commence specific training as preparations for the tournament.

At the halfway point, Sampson Assorgbah has shown his strength posting consecutive scores of 74, giving him a two-round total of 148.

He is followed by Frank Avorsey at 150 and Alfred Kwame at 155. Kofi Yeboah, Christopher Mbii and Isaac Kuttey are all tied at 158, rounding out the top four scores thus far.

All participants will meet again in the coming weeks to complete the final two rounds and establish the official traveling team.
