Ghana’s professional golfer, Amos Korblah made the nation proud after making the cut at the just ended British Senior Open at Carnousite.

After the final day of play, Korblah played a total of 300 which placed him in 66th position.

He becomes the first Professional golfer from Ghana to make the cut in an international prestigious competition and that is seen by his fellow golfers as no mean an achievement.

For him, it was a pleasure to see the Ghana flag among others at the competition that assembled some of the finest talents across the globe.

There was a strong field of 140 senior golfers from all over the world to play with 20 failing to make the cut, including seasoned seniors like Colin Montgomery, Craig Stardler, Fred Funk, Tod Hamilton, Sandy Lyle and Sam Torrance.

Even though Amos did not play well on the final day, he managed to beat eight players to rub shoulders with the likes of Miguel Angel Jimenez, Bernhard Langer, Tom Lehman, Tom Watson, to mention a few.

Speaking to the media, President of the Professional Golfers Association of Ghana (PGA-Ghana), Mr. Bliss Ayivor said “we couldn’t ask for more. Amos has shown what untapped potential we have in Ghana.

He added that “surely this must be an eye opener for Ghana that there is an alternative sport to football that can make Ghana proud”.

Mr. Ayivor congratulated Amos Korblah, describing him as the hero of Ghana golf saying “I know this is what Ghana golf has been waiting for. It is only the beginning. There will be more to follow.”
