Zimbabwean lifts Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket golf trophy

Winner Krog with Ian Stevenson and Trevor Dodds.

The youngest player at the Windhoek Lager Africa Jacket golf championship held last week, 19-year-old Zimbabwean Stuart Krog received the green jacket after winning the trophy of the A division at the two day competition that took place at the Windhoek Country Club Golf Course.

Krog is currently ranked number one on Zimbabwe’s amateur golf ranking.
At the gala dinner Deputy Minister of sport Agnes Tjongarero congratulated all participating golfers from 9 African countries and thanked NBL and Windhoek Lager for creating this great platform. “To realize your dreams in sport you must have some sort of sponsorship,” she said and added, “nothing comes easy in sport and you need to work hard, be dedicated and make sacrifices to achieve success.”
She also invited all countries back to the Land of the Brave and encouraged them to market Namibia a bit more in their countries as well as NBL and their great product Windhoek Lager.
Ian Stevenson of NBL said that the interest in the game had grown tremendously and three more African countries had already indicated an interest of joining next year. “We are not only looking at increasing the number of participating countries next year, but also investigating the possibility of including other divisions and categories, for example, a ladies section, a disabled category or even a visually impaired division. We are excited at the endless possibilities.”
Namibia’s Paul Ndeilenge came second while Abas Adam Sumbi of Tanzania was third in the A division. The team event was also won by the Zimbabwean team of Krog, Jerry Mudzikizi and Clement Chimuti with Namibia securing the second place. Andre Burger of Namibia won the B division and Clement Chimuti of Zimbabwe the C division.
