Doctor Zia Rizvi, who is also the chairman of the Seychelles Golf Federation, is the grand winner of the Absa July Mug competition with a splendid 62 nett.

Held last Saturday, the tournament played on Medal format – where every shot counts to the total score (gross), before the handicap is minus and the lowest score wins (nett) – graced short of 30 players.

With 65 nett, Micheal Lavigne finished second, ahead of third-placed Gibran Rizvi and Peter Moncherry who finished fourth overall.

Caroline Bradley set the club house lead with 67 nett to finish fifth, only to be edged of the podium by Moncherry and Gibran Rizvi, all on 67 nett, but Gibran’s back nine was better than the two others.

The prizes were presented by Absa Bank representative Amanda Bernstein.

The next competition will be the Sly’s Open Challenge which will take place on Saturday.
