 Muthiya sweats to win Magnum Classic golf tourney

By Mercy Chewe
Golf icon Madalitso Muthiya has won the Magnum Classic golf tournament held at Chainama Golf Club in Lusaka over the weekend.

It was a hard fought victory for Muthiya who was pushed to the play-off by Mwalikwa Sondashi on the final day of the competition.

Muthiya and Sondashi were tied on a three-day level par-216 that was two shots better than Chilanga golfer Patrick Mwendapole senior who was number three at the competition.

Visiting Senegalese Samba Niang and Sydney Wemba emerged joint fourth on 11-over-par 227.

Amateurs Bwembya Chanda and Musamba Kapoma junior had a memorable competition at the Chilanga Golf Course.

Chanda finished with a four-over-par 220 to win the amateur title, just three strokes better than Kapoma, who defeated him at the Prudential Classic at Chilanga a fortnight ago.
