Zimbabwe: Batsirai for Mash East Strokeplay

BATSIRAI Tilowakuti is confident that she will do well in the Mashonaland East and West strokeplay that tees off at Ruwa this morning. "I am in good shape and I look forward to the tournament. As the first

event of the season I am still to see the level of competition this season," she said.

"I am working on my swing and it is shaping up and I hope the course will not affect my play. I know Ruwa as I have played there several times and I think it is still the same.

"The game was so competitive last year and I did not do well in my last tournament at Troutbeck where I finished second."

Tilowakuti is bracing for a challenge.

"I think Loice Chingono, Shamiso Makwara, Yallanda Mubaiwa among several other top players, can give me the challenge.

"To me Chingono is very competitive but I feel that I can match the challenge," Tilowakuti said.

The event is expected to have a field of more than 40 players.

This year a committee made up of Patricia Makurumure and Connie Mashiri organised the event.

"We had the draw at the venue and the numbers increased significantly from the initial 40 who had registered.

"We are also thankful to the sponsors who came and helped the union.
