Geoff Mnisi is a man on a mission.

Having won the club championship at Kempton Park Country Club, becoming the first black player to lift this trophy in the club's history, Mnisi hopes to win another major tournament soon.

An excited Mnisi now has his sights on the Mid-Amateur Dale Hayes golf tournament at the Royal Johannesburg Country Club at the end of this month and he is confident of winning it.

The player is determined to do well and also to catch the eye of some sponsors during the tournament.

And with his experience and exciting golfing style he stands a chance of getting some financial help.

"Winning at Kempton Park was my major achievement and I told myself that I will not look back after that feat," Mnisi said.

"I've been on top of my game recently and have won a number of tournaments in Tembisa. Among them was the club champion I won in 2006 and the following year I finished second."

He also won eight monthly tournaments and came second in four others.

"But a win at Kempton Park was something to enthuse about because it was a historic feat," Mnisi said.

Last week Mnisi came second to Dinah Flamingo at Kempton Park in the monthly medal count after they were level on 72.

"I'm at my best and I was not disappointed because Flamingo's handicap is higher than mine, that is why he was awarded the trophy

"I'm training hard and I'm always at the driving range. I am improving my play almost every day and at the moment I'm on top of my game.

"I know the course well and am determined to make a mark on the day," he said.

Mnisi, who is a former caddie, only started to play competitively in 1989.

By then he was still finding his feet but at the moment he is one of the best golfers in Tembisa.
