Nigeria’s only representative on the Ladies professional ranks as a member of the Ladies European Tour, Georgia Oboh, did herself and country proud at the just concluded Czech Ladies Open held at the Beroun Golf Club in Beroun, Czech Republic.
Oboh, started the tournament with an opening round of 69(3 under par) and then shot scores of 72 (level par) and 74 (2 over par) to gross the tournament out at 1 under par for the three days to finish in 42nd position out of 132 ladies that competed.
With a performance like this just coming after 4months of lockdown in Nigeria, Oboh was delighted by the performance but also highlighted the lack of proper preparation due to funding issues as still a factor continuing to plague her game
Oboh who was born in the UK to Nigerian parents from Edo State, She is however upbeat and noted that showing this kind of promise is sure to get some more attention from corporate sponsors.
The event was televised all around the Czech Republic local news and was sponsored by the local betting agency Tipsport which is based in Beroun , Czech Republic.
Oboh 19-years old, now moves onto Switzerland to compete in the next two events in the next two weeks which are the Flumsberg Ladies Open in Gams Switzerland from 3-5th September and the VP Bank Ladies Open in Zurich from the 10-12th September.
The Czech ladies Open was won by Emily Pedersen of Denmark who plays full time on the LPGA but currently in Europe following play at the Womens Open and the Scottish Ladies Open where she lost in the play offs.
