Ghanaian golfer, Vincent Torgah has etched his name further in the history of Nigeria golf by becoming the first player to win the Nigeria Masters title for the third time during a four-day tournament at the IBB International Golf Course.

The same was the fate of Kano State professional Kabiru Haruna who also dropped from third to joint 6th after carding a final round six over par 78. As the curtains fall on the 2019 Nigeria Masters.
