Adrenalin is reaching fever pitch with a few days left before the Zimbabwe Open Golf Tournament tees off on Thursday, with competitors believing the wet weather will be the gameâ€™s biggest challenge.
Two of Zimbabweâ€™s top golfers – Bruce MacDonald and Mike Baylis – feel the competition promises to be exciting with a course that has been under so much maintenance and heavy rains.
â€œI have returned to compete in the Zimbabwe Open and my hopes are that I will win it. The greens are fantastic, but the fairway is going to be difficult especially after the wet weathers,â€ commented MacDonald.
Baylis had this to say, â€œMy hope is to see the Zim Open lifted by a Zimbabwean, but the rough course is going to be a challenge especially with the rains.â€
Most of the 144 competing golfers are already in the country for the three-day
Event, which will begin with a pro-am and a pre-cu at Chapman Golf Club on Tuesday.
Forget the fine tuning or the rankings for the real battle shall be decided by the course, which is rated one of the most difficult terrains in the country.Â
