Twenty-two handicapper Yemi Ajibola emerged the overall winner of the 2016 Total Charity Golf Tournament concluded over the weekend in Lagos.

Ajibola, who recorded a total of 42 stableford points at the Lakowe Lakes Golf Club, beat Omo Izedonmwen with 38 points to the second place while Uwem Udoh was beaten on countback to the third place at the one day event.

“I am delighted here and I think it all worked out well because of the great course condition and my present form. It is a great privilege to win this Charity event sponsored by Total,” Ajibola said.

Managing Director and Chief Executive of Total E&P Nigeria, Nicolas Terraz, said that the event was set up to benefit charity organisation across the country.

According to him, “Thanks to so many of you who have identified with this cause through your various donations today. This year two charity homes which provide care for the abandoned, motherless and vulnerable children in the society will benefit from the special fund. They are Olive Blooms and Friends of Jesus Orphanage Homes near Ajah and Badore respectively in Eti-Osa Local Government of Lagos.”

In the ladies category, Nicole Fogli returned 42 stableford points, beating Yvette Pape by three points to the runner-up position and Idowu Babalakin with 36 points to the third position.
