Round Three Pairings:

Morgan Otile and  Herbert Opolot lock horns with Vincent Asiimwe and Francis Otim’s team.

The other women pairing of Irene Nakalembe and Eva Magala battles Charles Hamya and the long hitting Joseph Bogera.

Tension and uncertainty will be the name of the game as the 32 golfers left in the competition edge closer to the season’s grand prize; atrip to Dubai for the DP World Tour Championship happening in November.

Only eight pairs will advance to round four of the Challenge after Saturday’s action but for those who are unfortunate to drop out, there will be the standard consolation of the Singleton Challenge’s remarkable 19th hole experience, which, according toUBL’s Head of Whisky Portfolio, Annette Nakiyaga will take the golfers back in time with a 90s theme.

The game is advancing, the tension is rising, numbers are reducing and we are getting closer to the climax. With all the uncertainty that continues to engulf the outcomes of each game; one thing is for sure; we’ll endeavor to make every experience an unforgettable one in the true spirit of The Singleton

Beside the grand prize, this year’s tournament also features the alluring reward of a 2018 Mitsubishi Pajero Sport for any player who manages a hole in one.
