FORMER Hillside Golf Club player Maxwell Nyabvure outplayed a field of more than 30 golfers to win the inaugural Montclair Invitational Tournament held at the nine-hole Clairmont Golf Course in Nyanga yesterday.
Nyabvure, who amassed 37 points on day one of the Individual Stableford on Friday, scooped pole position ahead of Fainah Bungare who settled for second position with a tally of 33.
Jane Salimo was third with 21 points.
Bungare partnered Chipo Magadzire on day two of the tournament yesterday and the duo snatched the coveted first position with 42 points.
Montclair general manager Brian Nyakutombwa and Martin Nyaundi were in second position after amassing 39 points while the duo of Langston Govinder and Anwar Wazi were counted out to third with the 39 points.
Through one of its publications, Business Weekly, Zimpapers sponsored some prizes that were won by some of the participants.
Business Weekly editor Herbert Zharare said: “We decided as Business Weekly that we divert from the norm in journalism where we just report on who who said what but to actively participate in economic development. We want to revolutionalise the way the media operate. So we have been doing a lot of functions. This Montclair Invitational Tournament is one of the many functions we have attended.
“We have attended it in a unique way. We want to partner business in development and create that mutual and symbiotic relationship with business, hence the decision to sponsor awards for this tournament. Yes, the awards are not flamboyant but they will stimulate a good relationship between us and the business community. For example, we gave them accommodation vouchers at Montclair and we have also given the gadgets in the form of tablets that will enable access to our products as Zimpapers,” he said.
