TLGU president Mbonile Burton told the ‘Daily News’ in Dar es Salaam that Angel informed them that she secured a training trip to Holland at the end of last year when she won Pepsi Independence Golf Day title at the Kitante Golf Club in Kampala, Uganda.
Angel herself confirmed: “I expect to travel to Holland in June. Pepsi Uganda have sponsored the trip.” She added that she will travel with Ugandan top player and East and Central Africa Challenge Trophy individual champion Flavia Namakula, who finished behind her at the Kampala tournament.
“The trip is for two players. It’s an opportunity which one cannot turn down and so I am looking forward to it,” she said. Burton commended Angel’s individual effort that earned her the training trip and wished her all the best. “She is a good player.
Individually, she has done a lot to make the country proud and she deserves the trip,” she said. “I hope this opportunity will inspire her to have a best ever golf career as she is still young and has a lot of potential. We wish t see more local professional golfers than amateurs in future.”
