Kenyan professional golfer Greg Snow has high expectations in this year’s Barclays Kenya Open golf Championship scheduled for the par-71 Muthaiga Golf Club course.

The 26-year-old Snow will be very much at home during this week’s tournament at Muthaiga. He says his expectations this year is to win the Kenya Open.

“I play in events to win not only to participate. I have a  goal to finish in a better position than I did a few years ago,” says Snow, who was born on June 16, 1990, and whose main objective is to play in the European and PGA Tours.

And if his recent performance in the Barclays Kenya Open qualifying events are anything to go by, Snow is certainly one of the players the visiting professionals will have to watch.

He is hot, keen and ready to go, which is the spirit the rest of the 22 Kenyans in the Open should have. His best placing in the Open is tying ninth, having gone up the leaderboard before dropping after a couple of bad holes at Karen Country.

During the recent qualifying event played at his home course of Muthaiga, Snow shot eight under par, a score which would have seen finish in the top five if he was playing in the Kenya Open.

“I have been practicing daily to keep myself in good shape for the Open. My current form is pretty good still a few things to tune up prior to the open that I am working on.

“Last year I had an injury did not play at all, this year I shall be starting off with the Mena Tour School in Morocco just before the Kenya open,” Snow before leaving for Morocco on March 2.
