Ezekiel Tiri on Saturday emerged champion of the 2021 CBN Governor’s golf Cup after finishing as the overall best nett winner of the one-day tournament in Abuja.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that playing off handicap 18 and recording a gross score of 87, Tiri returned an overall best nett of 69 to emerge winner of the tournament.

He was closely followed by J. Bello who played off handicap 14 with a gross score of 87 and a best nett of 73.

O. A. Ajibade, playing off handicap 13 with a gross score of 89 and 76 nett, finished as first runner up, while M. R. Danjaji playing off handicap 17 with a gross score of 95 and 78 nett, settled for the second runners’ up position.

“First of all I thank God because my winning was by His grace.

“I have been playing for quite a while and actually started golfing in 2009 and currently playing off handicap 18.

“So I would say I am quite experienced in the game, but my success today was a mixture of my skills and a little bit of luck on my side,” an elated Tiri said.

Tiri, who expressed his gratitude to the CBN for a well-organised tournament, however, urged the organisers to do more in terms of sponsoring more golf tournaments in the country.
