Top golfer Moloi returns from knee injury layoff

MASERU — Leading professional golfer Motlalentoa Moloi is set to return from a knee injury layoff when he takes part at the Simola Championship in the Eastern Cape in South Africa next week.
Moloi has not played since incurring an injury on his knee at a tour event in Swaziland at the beginning of last month.
“I’m fine now, I have started practising and I preparing to play at the Simola Championship,” he told the Lesotho Times on Monday.
Moloi who turned professional in 2004 competes on the prestigious Sunshine Tour, a professional men’s golf series played across the Southern African region.
He also revealed that Lesotho will participate at the Africa Championship in October in South Africa.
The event is the premier golf tournament on the amateur circuit and Moloi won’t be able to take part because he is a professional.
“I will only be overseeing the team,” he said.
The tournament will run from October 18 to 21 at the Benoni Lake.
“Each country has to send a team of four players and one manager to the championship,” Moloi said.
“We are going to select a team of seven or eight before we cut it down to the final four.”
Moloi who has on a number of occasions failed to attend tournaments owing to lack of financial support said he
was also not sure whether next week’s trip to the Simola Championship will materialise.
“It’s not clear because of lack of funds,” Moloi said.
“But I’m hoping to find a way to attend the event.”
