After an epoch making feat last week that sawÂ his shooting a new course record in Abuja, Christian Godfrey is now Nigeriaâ€™s number one golfer.
In a an exclusive sneak preview of the Nigerian â€˜Order of Meritâ€™ statuesÂ after the 11th CMCL Championship, the thirty year old player hasÂ shot up from his fourth spot on the ranking to the prime spot, displacing Ghanaâ€™s Emos Korblah from the spotÂ for the first time in the on-going season.
In a reaction to the development, he told Complete Sports that he had known that the ten under par 62 carding on the third day of the CMCL Championship will do a lotÂ for him.
â€œ Prior to this time I have not been swinging well, that was why I was very picky aboutÂ my appearance outside the country, I knew I had a lot to do to my game to gain some measure of confidence. With what has happened I am ready for a lot of things and I know the win will do a lot to me, so I am not surprised when I am told I now lead the ranking; this time I can defend itâ€
