Golf: Omoluwa Slams Odoh Over Par Scores

The executive chairman of Pinnacle Communications, Sir Lucky Omoluwa, has slammed Ochei Odoh for changing golf dynamism following his thunderous putt on the 18th hole to clinch the NNPC GMD’s Cup with just a stroke at the IBB Golf Club, Abuja

Odoh won the four-day tourney with 7-over par and this is what is infuriating an outspoken member of the IBB Club Board of Trustees, Omoluwa, who said that it was unacceptable for a professional to win an event with a 7-over par score.

Omoluwa disclosed this when he was delivering a special speech at the closing dinner ceremony of the NNPC championship at the weekend.

“It is quite unimaginable watching a professional carding an over score to win an event.

“We can see some amateurs returning under-par score in big events and there is no big deal in this. Yes, I know that in golf one never leaves feeling completely content and there must be something a golfer could have done better. But the truth I know is it is quite ridiculous for a Pro to return an over score to win such big event like the one we just witnessed,” Omoluwa said.

All the same, Odoh, trying to make his victory look important, offered a timid response that the nation’s professionals are sometimes misfiring because they are not properly engaged with adequate tourneys. This, to Omoluwa, reads like a lame excuse.
