Zimbabwean junior golfer Miriam Masiya defied her age to be crowned the winner of girls’ longest drive contest at the All Africa Junior Golf Championship at the par-72 Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort and Spa in Uganda on Wednesday.

Masiya, a 13-year-old budding golfer from Masvingo Golf Club hit the ball furthest among the girls on the par 4 hole 16, to oushine participants from other African countries.

She dedicated her win to the father-cum-personal coach Richard Masiya, a golf coach at Masvingo Golf Club.

“I am more than happy for winning the longest drive contest at the 2023 All Africa Junior Golf Championship in Uganda. This is a push factor to my career. I dedicate my prize to my father, who is also my father” noted Masiya, who is a Form 1 student at Mucheke High School in Masvingo.

Masiya’s longest drive shot came off the Bloom driver that perfectly hit the Titlest 8-Red ball.

Uganda’s Abdul Kakeeto was crowned the winner in the boys’ competition.

The two junior golfers received crowns and specially crafted plaques.
