The 8th Ikeja Golf Club Championship came to a glamorous end last Sunday, with Muyideen Olaitan winning the title after two days of intense battle.
More than 100 golfers took part in the competition.
Playing one-shot off the pace going to the final and lying behind Jimoh Ogundare on count back, Olaitan grossed a score 80, beating Chris Obije and Ogundare to the second and third position respectively, leaving first round leader, Gbenga Ayodele in the fourth position.
While Olaitan grossed a two-day score of 160, the duo of Ogundare and Obije tied on 161, while Ayodele was further back at 164-gross.
