Ghana’s professional golfer, Amos Korblah, made Ghana proud after making it to the cut at the just ended British Senior Open at Carnousite.
After the final day of play, Korblah played a total of 300 which placed him in 66th position.
He is the first professional from Ghana to make the cut in an internationally prestigious competition.
There was a strong field of 140 senior golfers from all over the world to play and 20 did not make the cut, including seasoned senior golfers like Colin Montgomery, Craig Stardler, Fred Funk, Tod Hamilton, Sandy Lyle and Sam Torrance.
Even though Korblah did not play well on the final day, he still managed to beat eight players and rubbed shoulders with the likes of Miguel Angel Jimenez, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, Tom Watson, to mention a few.
Speaking to the media, the president of the Professional Golfers Association of Ghana (PGA-Ghana), Mr Bliss Ayivor said “we couldn’t ask for more. Amos has shown what untapped potential we have in Ghana.”
He added that “surely this must be an eye opener for Ghana that there is an alternative sport to football that can make Ghana proud”.
Mr Ayivor congratulated Korblah, describing him as the hero of Ghana golf saying, “I know this is what Ghana golf has been waiting for. It is only the beginning. There will be more to follow.”
