Zim Open amateur team named

TOP amateur golfers David Amm and Kieran Vincent, regarded as the most promising local players, will have an opportunity to showcase their talent at the highest level when they take part in the Golden Pilsner Zimbabwe Open next month.

The golfers have been doing well in both local and international events with their latest outing coming when they finished joint 12th at the Curro South Africa Junior Championships last Friday.

Amm went on to win the Mashonaland West Golf Union championships at the weekend.

It is, however, in the Zimbabwe Open, which is the next on the Sunshine Tour, where the duo, along with three other locals, will be tested.

Vincent, who is set to leave for a golf scholarship in United States in August, will remain the one to watch.

Local amateurs have been doing well on the big stage with Sean Crocker emerging as the best amateur in 2014 while Scott Vincent, who has since turned professional, took the honours last year.

Amm became the youngest amateur to qualify for the Zimbabwe Open at the age of 14 last year.

He, however, failed to make the cut.

Zimbabwe Golf Association have since announced the five players who will fill the slots this year.

Boniface Chigorimbo, the technical director of ZGA, said they were happy with those who have made it for the Zimbabwe Open.

“We are happy to announce the players who will take part in this year’s Golden Pilsener Zimbabwe Open and they are Vincent, Amm, Tanaka Mhere, John Milazi and Tonderai Masunga,” he said.

The event is set for April 14-17 and local professionals who are already in include Scott Vincent, Mark Williams, Greg Bentley and Ryan Cairns with several others set to be confirmed by Zambezi Tour.
