Sanya wins the Lady Captain’s Cup tournament
A renowned amateur golfer, Sunday Oladipo Sanya emerged as the weekend winner among the 250 entrants who took part in the ongoing IBB International Golf and Country Club’s Lady Captain’s Cup tournament at the prestigious IBB Golf Course in Abuja.
Sanya shot 73 gross to 65 net to beat the field of golfers who played in the one-day 18-hole tournament signaling the end of the women’s section led by Mrs. Mary-Rose Richard Obiora of BWI International Golf and Country Club. The feat lowered Sanya’s handicap from 8 to 6.
Speaking to LEADERSHIP after receiving the trophy, Sanya said he was fully prepared for the tournament, saying it was not the first time he recorded the feat.
“I felt thrilled, I played a great game of golf with my friends, everything went well and I shot 73 rough.
“I was fully prepared for it and it wasn’t the first time I played this kind of big,” Sanya said.
Sanya assured her fans and friends to expect a better round of golf from her on her new 6 handicap golfer.
“They should expect a better round of golf provided my wife gives me more time to play golf.”
The current Captain of the IBB Golf Club, Mrs Mary-Rose Richard Obiora, who could not hide her joy at achieving success and making an impact on life, said she wanted us to remember her as a happy team player and an accomplisher.
She congratulated the members of the ladies’ section of BWI Golf for their overwhelming support. “I am really excited and satisfied with the success of the event. It was quite competitive and the golf course was packed, nearly 250 players participated and we give God the glory. The weather was nice, everything went well and people had fun.
“Today is a special day for me and I feel very happy. I am doing all my lady captain programs without shifting anyone. My committee members were really wonderful, the ladies were wonderful and the manager and president of the Lady Captain Cup, Mrs. Osuhor Ngozi Veronica, was so wonderful.
As you can see at the departure ceremony, all my bosses, GMD, BOT were there. I feel totally humbled and grateful to God. I thank God for all of them and I also thank the members of the club, they are so wonderful. I want to be remembered as someone who likes to be happy, to work in a team, to be successful and I am sure that I succeeded with the help of my committee and the whole women’s section.
She urged the new Lady Captain to get on with the job and take everyone on.
“The next captain needs to be a team player, forgiving, committed and above all dedicated to working and getting everyone on board. Transparency is key.”
