SHEPARD Chiwaya, who lost the Julius Robinson Trophy through a play-off to Garry Thompson last year, believes playing at home will only piled the pressure on him.

The annual Julius Robinson Trophy tees off at Wingate Park Golf Club with a host of the country’s leading amateur golfers expected to feature this morning.

“I think I will try and make up on last season’s miss when I lost through the play-offs to Thompson.

“The event comes at the right time as I am raring to go and I am enjoying my game.

“I want to protect my order of merit standings so I hope to do much better than last year.

“I think playing at my home course will not give me an edge since everyone knows the course well and it will actually come with pressure as several people will be expecting me to do well.

“We have a good team that is capable of winning and I hope each one of us will have a good game so that we bounce back to winning ways,” said Chiwaya.

Chiwaya will be supported in the team event by Tendai Katembenuka, James Kamalizeni and Tatenda Makunde to challenge for the Wingate Trophy.

The team will have a stiff challenge from perennial contenders Royal Harare and Chapman who also have assembled g sides.

Royal Harare will be banking on Tonderai Masunga, Kiren Vincent, Gerald Shwabane and Searchmore Saoneka while Chapman looks ger on paper as they have lined up Stuart Krog, Pride Sembo, David Amm and Thembelani Vundhla in their A team.
