Only sixteen players will advance to the final two rounds of the Nigeria Masters on a day that failed to follow the script.
Two internationals and three Nigerians failed to advance past the cut line. Ghanaian Vincent Torgah and number one player on the African Tour Order of Merit did not fail to send signal to all and sundry that he remains the king of golf in the West Africa region.
Vincent Torgah has an effortless power that is the foundation of his game, along with the confidence that comes with being the defending champion at the Nigeria Masters tournament. Those traits helped Torgah recover from a bogey on the second hole with a birdie on the third enroute to a seven-under 65 and a 7-shots lead after 36-holes at nine-under par, on a windy thursday at Abuja.
He’s joined at the top of the leader board, by Patrick Paul who also cruised to a second round three-under par 69 which left him seven shot off the pace.
The 2019 B&E Matchplay champion Visitor Mapwanya finished third on the leaderboard with a one-under par 71 on the IBB golf course on day two and now one-over par giving him a one-shot cushion over Kabiru Haruna who also finished two-over after 36 holes.
Emos Korblah, Kingsley Oparaku and Sunday Olapade who are all past winners on the African Tour are joint 5th on the leader board at three-over par and twelve shots adrift heading into the moving day.
Torgah, who is starting his fourth year on the African Tour, has won himself the Number-1 status on the Tour since 2017 till date and has retained that position for 152 weeks consecutively. The Ghanaian also known as ‘MR CONSISTENCY’ has also been the only player to have won the Nigeria Masters title back-to-back so this could be a big weekend for him in the 2019 season runoffs.
