In an interview with the GNA Sports, Mr. Barni noted that he was focused on winning the trophy for the third time and for keep.
He said though it would not come easy, he was well poised for the competition and would do well to come out victorious by close of event on Saturday.
"I am very ready for this year's championship, where I am aiming to win for the third time and for keep.
"The win would not come easy as there had been some modifications to the course, but as a professional, I have psyched myself up for the task.
"I want to make history by winning for the third consecutive time and win the GH¢40,000.00 cash prize as stake, which is also a very good motivator," he added.
Mr. Barni would need to ward off stiff competition from Vincent Torgah and fourteen other professional Golfers from across Africa to realise his dreams.
