Golfers pose before teeing off for the fourth round of the Singleton match play challenge at Entebbe Club

Golfing couple Charles Kagombe and Edrea Kagombe have defied the odds to reach the semi-finals of the on-going Singleton match play golf challenge at the par-71 Entebbe club.

The Mbarara based couple overcame the pairing of Charles Odere and Moses Ssebugwawo.

They attributed their victory to the great strategy laid before the game.

“I played the opening shot on every hole and my wife Edrea would take on the second one and make amends” Charles Kagombe revealed.

Meanwhile, the pair of Patrick Ndase and Philemon Akatuhurira defeated William Bizibu and Alex Kazenga with six holes left to play.

Akatuhurira singled out the teamwork element as well as the early preparations.

“We learnt of our opponents (William Bizibu and Alex Kazenga), we sat down and planned accordingly. We embarked on early preparations and today, we have made it to the semi-finals” Akatuhurira remarked.
