Stress caused my defeat – Torgah

By Kenneth O. ADADE
Dethroned winner of the 2016 Gold Fields Ghana Professional Golfers Association of Ghana (PGA-Ghana) Championship, Vincent Torgah has blamed his inability to defend his title to stress and fatigue.

He was defeated in a sudden death game to place second after he drew with the overall winner KojoBarni from Tarkwa Golf Club.
Speaking in an interview with Finder Sports, he explained that this year had been a busy one for him because he had travelled all over Africa and also participated in lots of local competitions.
“I will say I travelled too much and was busy playing on the continent and coming back I did not have enough time to practice on the course before the competition started,” he said.
He commended the winner and urged him to do his best as Ghana needs more professional golfers to play at the world stage.
“He deserves to win because he played the best golf. I pushed him to the wall but it was unfortunate I could not win but I appreciate his efforts because he gave me a good run,” Torgah noted.
He however stressed that he was not disappointed by the results because he has participated in 10 competitions including the PGA and won nine out of the 10 and added on a lighter note “I can’t be greedy and selfish.”
The 2017 Tema Open winner said he has two other competitions to end the year that is the Ghana Open at the Achimota Golf Course and Mongomo Golf Championship in Equatorial Guinea.
He mentioned that he would start training immediately and hope his Ghanaian colleagues would also do same and at least make it to the cut in Mongomo.
He said his target is play at the world stage and he has already begun preparations towards that.
