Georgia Oboh is first Nigerian female golfer to make world ranking

Nigerian golf sensation, Georgia Oboh has made the list as the 1128 placed golfer in the world.

With the record, Oboh is the first female Nigerian golfer to be ranked in the Rolex World Golf ranking.

The teenage golfer has insisted that she has so much in her to-do-list but she is grateful to God for getting into the Rolex ranking at this stage.

Although sponsorship continues to plague the young golfer but she is not discouraged as she is not giving up on her dream for a successful sporting career.

She is therefore optimistic that this present achievement will bring her more support and will also help in proving to the stakeholders of her commitment to the process.

Oboh gained her Ladies European Tour card in category 9b at the qualifying school in Morocco last December and prior to this; she had won her first event as a professional golfer at the 2018 Cote d’Ivoire Open in her first start as a professional.

At present, she is undergoing her PGA Nigeria training and aims to be the first certified Lady Professional under the PGAN umbrella that have just opened up membership to the first batch of lady professionals in the country.

She hopes that gaining her certification would open the doors for other aspiring lady professionals and create career opportunities for the next generation of golf professionals.

As an ambassador of Nigeria and currently the only female professional from Nigeria on the Ladies European Tour, she has represented the country very positively in her outings from Australia to South Africa and now Europe.

Oboh’s next goal is to play in the Women’s British Open at Woburn in August and she is already warming up for the event.
