GREEN horns at the All Africa golf championships in Mauritius can stand
the heat despite the high standards, an official has said.

The two novices, Promise Sombeiro and Morton Kombayi, were expected to tee-off on Thursday at 8:20 and 8:40 in the morning respectively. The other two more experienced members of the Zimbabwe team, Graeme Lewis and Jack Allard, were also on course for the first round at 8:30 and 8:50 in that order.

“Morton Kombayi and Promise Sumbreiro have never performed at this
level but the guys are hitting the ball pure and very well. With some confidence after the practice round, we are expecting surprises,” Zimbabwe Gold Association secretary general Lazarus Clever said.

“We are hoping to have the chance to dehorn the South Africans that have
been dominating these championships for the past years. “We have never taken the trophy from them. It has always been South Africa. We are hoping that this time around, we will be able to do something,” Clever added.
