Some of the national golf team players have made a strong cal to the Tanzania Golf Union to prepare the team early ahead of the Africa Zone VI championship to be hosted by Namibia in April.
The golfers made the call over the weekend at the Lugalo Club at the end of a domestic tourney.
Idd Mzaki and Abdallah Yusuf made it clear that early preparations would possibly boost the team’s chances of performing well at the zonal championship.
The duo said TGU should also allocate a perfect training venue that would be reminiscent to the tournament venue in Windhoek.
However, the duo said they are not assured of a selection to join the team but insisted the need for early preparations are vital for team’s good performance.
“The advise to the national golf team is that time is against us, we must start preparations now, otherwise the country’s team will not perform well at the event”, said Yusuf.
When asked when the country national team is expected to enter camp, a TGU official who claimed for anonymity declined to comment.
TGU vice-president Joseph Tango when contacted for his comment promised to call back and failed to fulfill his promise up to the time we went to press.
Last year the country did not perform well at the event held in Malawi which attracted 12 countries.
In related development the annual Infotech Zuku 2013 golf tournament saw Mzaki emerging the winner while Yusufu was the runners-up. Division B winner was Joseph Tango and David Muthungu was the runners-up.
In division C the winner was Mohamed Rweyemanu beating Nada Margwe, while ladies category winner was Vicky Elias who eclipsed Sarah Denis.
