Golf ladies national team defends their title in Zimbabwe

Botswana ladies golf team is leaving on Monday to defend their triangular championships, which will be held in Zimbabwe.

The team will leave tomorrow (Monday) and the championships will start the following day. Before their departure, they expressed confidence to successfully win the championships they won last year in Zambia.

Coach of the team, Stu Stovold, told Sunday Standard he was happy with the preparations of the team.
“I am confident that we will do well in Zimbabwe and even the players are raring to go. Last year, we won away and why should we also not win away this time,” he said.

Stovold also thanked Phakalane Golf Estate for allowing them to have unlimited access to their facilities.
“We are not under any pressure of time to train because of the help from Phakalane Golf Estate. If it was not for their help maybe we would be having problems to train but it is currently not the case,” he said.

Stovold added that the tournament has not had a dominant force, but all countries have had their fair share.
The team is made up of two divisions which are A and B. The A division will be made up of Ewa Johnson, Cathrine Mosimanewakwena, Usla Singall, Robyn Cumming, and Nina Cloete. The B division on the other hand, comprises of Joan Piererse, Minkie Molatlhegi, Coral Ross, Tracey Simmons and Hailey Buchannan.
