Over two days of testing golf with gusting, tricky winds, Mirza negotiated a superb first round level par 71 and finished with a 79 over the final day to total 150 and win by a clear six shots.
“Thank you to the club for a great two days of golf and the condition were tough with the wind. Thank you to J.Lindeberg and Chervo for their support with the prizes. Also to Rob the Director of Golf Course Maintenance as the course was in great condition,” said Mirza.
