Vincent Torgah has revealed his plans to participate in the US and British Open Championships this year, following his success at the 2022 Samsung PGA Captain’s Prize Golf Tournament.
He won the Prize after a brilliant display from round 1 to round four.
Torgah was a delight to watch from day one, recording -3, -1, -9 and -5 better than any golfer to clinch his first trophy on the Celebrity Golf Course.
He is optimistic he will sail through in the upcoming tournaments, saying “Things are being put in place for me to leave for the championships very soon.”
“Let me thank my sponsors Samatex they are pushing me to go far, with them [Samatex] I can boldly say that I will be going to the US Open and the British Open this year and I am working hard to make Ghana and myself proud,” Torgah told Power Sports.
His success is a continuation of an impressive performance he showed in last month’s Goldfields PGA Championship when he won and he outlines how important it is for him to win the 2022 Samsung PGA Captain’s Prize Golf Tournament.
“I really set myself for the tournament very well, took all my chances and I knew I had a chance to win it so I stayed focused enough to win it. This is my first time winning at the celebrity golf course as a professional, so it means a lot to me.
“I’ve won all over Ghana but this was the only course that I have not been able to win so I was poised to win it…I want to take this game to the next level to encourage the youth,” Torgah explained. “I can’t do it alone and I need the support to take It to the highest level.’’
His younger brother Francis Torgah came second scoring -3, -3, -4, and level par after starting off well in rounds one and two but lost his grip from Round three as his big brother thought him how to end well.
Emos Koblah who started off better than the Torgah brothers in the first round, playing under four could not continue his momentum in the subsequent rounds as -2, -3, and level to place him in the third position.
A joint total Standard Scratch Score of 281 placed Lucky Ayisah and Stephen Klah at the fourth and fifth positions.
In the seniors’ category, Dawuda Mahama was the winner with a total score of 220 as Robert Degbe and Brave Mensah came second and third with a total score of 227 and 229 respectively.
The 2022 Samsung PGA Captain’s Prize Golf Tournament serves as a qualification to this year’s Gold Fields PGA Championship which will come off later this year in Damang.
