First round (leg3) of the Race to Nigeria masters (Pro/Am) tournament
3rd leg race to Nigeria masters: J. Alex manages to lead in day 1 of the tournament
It's the 3rd Leg of the race to Nigerian masters and this must be the toughest opening matches in a long time. 9 players currently in the city of Owerri are having a difficult time subduing the Arsenal Golf course.
Topping the leaderboard with 5 over par (77) is J. Alex. The Player expressed his great dissapointment in his game style today. It was more than the bogeys which he hit three and scored a triple birdie on hole 5. speaking to the africantour correspondent, Alex said "this was a severely disappointing round. But tomorrow is another day we hit the greens!"
Coming close in second place with 1 score difference is D. Ali who played a 6 over (78) albeit his 6 birdies and a double birdie. Refusing to talk much in his media chat he's resolute on doing better in his subsequent rounds.
There's a huge anticipation on U. Anoruo and G. Inalegwu who topped the second leg brilliantly but are lagging behind in this 3rd Leg. U. Anuoro struggles in a bottom tie with I. Okoh.
