Since the commencement of the novelty competition, Elwis Putters have held onto the top position and remain favourites to win the competition -- six points adrift of their closest challengers Victory Putters after the third week of competition.

They occupy the top spot with 30 points and a score of 623, and 28 holes in 1, with Victory Putters following closely with 26 points, a score of 602 and 36 holes in 1.

Amazing Putters are in the third position on the log with 24 points, a score of 598 and 27 holes in 1.

The weekly cash prizes are part of the sponsorship package provided by Caesars Court, the official sponsor of the league.

Ahead of the final week showdown at Caesars Court, Ridge, Elwils Putters captain, Samuel Okpoti, has expressed his confidence that his side would make history by winning the world’s first-ever Wheelchair Minigolf Clubs League title.
