Tema, Dec. 18, GNA - Mr Felix Owusu-Adjapong Majority Leader in Parliament who just last week was elected as the new President of the Tema Country Golf Club, failed to put the "icing on the cake" as he was dethroned as champion of the yearly Afariwaah invitational Golf Championship played at Tema on Saturday.

Owusu-Adjapong, who is also the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and a MP for Akim Swedru crumbled from a stiff opposition mounted by Frank Adu and Robert Allotey at this year's championship as he could only manage a lowly sixth position.

Adu returned 67 net, beating Robert Allotey on count-back, to win this year's competition.

Another favourite, Alex Fiagomey, also beat Kweku Okyere on count-back after they had both returned 69 net, to take the third position.

Esi Cobbina won the Ladies event with 69 net, Florence Etwi-Barimah came second with 70 net, beating Valentine Manteaw on countback. A.S. Ibrahim won the Professionals event with 71 gross while Eric Henaku took the second position with 74 gross.

Afariwaah Farms Limited sponsored the hone-day 18-hole stable-ford competition, which attracted more than 100 golfers from Achimota, Tema and Celebrity Golf Clubs.

Nana Owusu Afari, Managing Director of Afariwaah Farms Limited said the competition, started some 12 years ago continued to generate interest yearly.

He said the company would continue to support the club as its way of contributing to the development of the lesser-known sports in the country.
