Mr Ugochukwu Chigborogu has emerged overall winner of the 2018 Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor’s Cup golf competition which took place at the IBB International Golf and Country Club, Abuja.

Chigborogu who is a staff of Nigeria Agip Oil Company defeated 200 other participants with a drive of 26 handicap after he recorded a gross of 91 and 65 net.

He told newsmen that winning the competition was a dream come through having nurtured the ambition for four years.

Chigborogo noted that luck played a major role in his emergence as the new CBN Golf Champion.

“You don’t need luck 100 per cent to win but there are at times when you play and you see luck play with you.

“Like today, there was a shot I made that would have gone into the bush but luck made it to hit a tree and then fall back to the fairway, and with that I got my second shot beautifully well and I made a birdie in that hole, meaning that I shot below par.

“So, I didn’t target that tree and I didn’t know how it hit the tree, but at the end of the day, I was lucky it happened that way.

“I thank God who made it possible for me to be a celebrated champion today. I have been hoping for a day like this for four years now when I started playing Golf, even though I have not been playing regularly.

“It was a major challenge not playing always because each time I come back from wherever I have traveled to, it’s like starting all over again. The game of golf needs you to be constant otherwise you will be left behind. (NAN)
