ZIMBABWE lifted the 2012 A and B triangular series trophy after getting the better of Zambia and Botswana at Gaborone Golf Club on Thursday.

Team Zimbabwe, under the guidance of Rhoda Muridzo, amassed 13 points in the A division and 10 points in the B division to emerge victorious.

Zambia, who won the event in 2010, were in second place while Botswana, three points behind, got the wooden spoon. The team had confidence and managed to win both divisions when they collected points at the end of the event.

The B division had Zambia finishing on 12 points as Botswana managed six points. Zambia won the tournament in their backyard last year and had come in expecting nothing short of victory, but their team manager, Moono Mwila, believes the weather affected their game.

Meanwhile, the Zimbabwe junior golf national team booked a ticket for the World junior championships set for Japan in June when they finished second at the All-Africa Junior Golf Championships in Lusaka, Zambia.
