Golf >>Professional Golf

Since the 1970’s when the Ghanaians started winning, a lot of the talented winners turned Professional. 

The first Ghanaian Amateurs to turn Professional was David Abaloo. The winners who have not turned Professional are notably G. K. Asante (1977 winner) E. M. Kwame (1998 winner). The Professional event has always taken back stage at the Ghana Open therefore to improve the Professional Game the Ghana Professional Golfers Association set up the WAMCO Tour.

 

The Principle of this Tour sponsored by West Africa Cocoa Company of Takoradi was to oragnise Pros Ams, Golf Clinics and monthly Professional Events. As in all Professional Events, two Players, Amos Korblah and Victor Brave-Mensah excelled and won most the Tournaments. Sponsorship has since lapsed and Professional Golf is a bit in the doldrums again.

 

Our  Professionals   have  chalked  successes international, with  Amos  Korblah  being  the  first  African  to win  the  Nigeria  Open,  a  Safari Tour  Event  that  had  been  the  monopoly  of  European  Pros.   Previous  European  Winners  catapulted  their  carreers  to become  World  Champions eg,  Nick  Faldo,  Vijay  Sighn.
