Okah picks Heineken Ikoyi Ladies Open Trophy

Winner, Diana Okah (MIDDLE) with Jacqueline Van Fassen, senior brand Manager, Heineken(L) and Busola Joseph, Lady Captain Ikoyi club

Diana Okah, a Port Harcourt indigene and Golf club top amateur female golfer emerged winner of the Heineken/Ikoyi Ladies Open golf championship on Friday evening.

It was a hard fought victory for the aged player, who had won several tournaments across the country, dethroning two time winner, Evelyn Oyome in a keenly contested tournament.

Okah shot a marvelous 81 on day one, and slumped to 89 on day two for a combine of 170 gross. She was one better than Oyome, who shot a combined 171 for two days. An elated Okah got a rousing treatment from her feat beating over 100 other female players from top golf courses in the country.

Heineken sponsoring the sport for the first time rewarded Okah with a Trophy and branded items. Heineken recently launched its Heineken Magnum, the first beer to pop. The beer in a 1.5 litre bottle is good for sharing and comes in a unique and attractive bottle.
