El Gouna, Egypt | LOUIS JADWONG & AGENCIES | Morocco’s golf team has emerged African Champions, after topping a 72-hole tournament at El Gouna, a town on Egypt’s Red Sea Coast.

The Kenyan team was third and took the bronze medal with 10 under par

Star of the tournament was South Africa’s Jonathan Bromhead, who took first place and the gold medal with a stunning 18 under par score. He carded 69, 70, 66 and 65 for a total 270 strokes.
