Vincent Torgah moved up the leaderboard after the day’s round of 5-under par 67 at the Nigeria Masters yesterday at IBB International Golf and Country Club, Abuja. The Ghanaian romped from the 17th position to share lead with half- way leader Kabiru M. Mohammed.
Both players dictated the tempo with a total of 220 after 54 holes and will play the final group of the final round of the West Africa Golf Tour schedule today.
Giving them a hot chase are Andrew Odoh and Gboyega Oyebanji, who are one just stroke out of the lead at 221. Odoh, a two- time winner of West Africa Golf Tour events and Oyebanji, who missed most last year’s regular season because of thump injury are tied for third.
Forty four players made the cut to the third round following Friday’s second round. One of the standout performers at the Masters is debutant Donatus Obadofin, who made the cut in his first professional event.
The young player started playing the Tour event as an amateur but earned his professional status at the Masters.
