2021 Kinshasa Open: Olapade finish top as Mr consistency wins in Congo

Having started two strokes behind the leaders on Sunday, he held firm to win the 2021 Kinshasa Open and with a final score of  3-over par (219) in the 54-holes contest, with a wining margin of four strokes ahead of his closest  contender Edoard Espana,  Vincent Togarh goes home with the star prize.
Togarh  teed off sitting two shots behind halfway  leader Gresse Gerald. The Ghanaian  player then put up a show of excellence in the final round on Sunday, helping him sign for a level par 72 score.
While leader at the start of play on Sunday,  Gerald of Belgium, had a difficult final round littered with bogeys. The Belgian player only managed to finish joint 2nd on 8-over par (224), whilst French man Eduard Espana’s 8-Over par (223) was good enough for a second place too.
Joe Nawanga of Namibia finished 4th on 9-over par, followed by Nigeria’s Sunday Olapade who  sealed the 5th spot at 10-over par.

It has been a very difficult test for the players as the Kinshasa Golf Course played trickier and tougher this week…
