In Summary
  • Owiti returns to Arusha to defend his title but has his work cut out.
  • Mudanyi, Kisia and Owiti head to Arusha to join Kenyan pros for 72-hole tourney that tees off on Thursday.

Three of Kenya’s leading amateur golfers left on Wednesday for Arusha ready for this year’s Tanzania Open golf championship at the Kiligolf Resort in Usa River.

The resort is situated near Kilimanjaro International Airport between Arusha and Moshi.

The three players, Edwin Mudanyi, Mike Kisia and Robinson Owiti, all from Vet Lab Sports Club will be joining a strong team of 18 Kenyan professionals most of whom also left yesterday ready for the 72-hole championship.

Mudanyi warmed up for the Arusha championship in apt fashion.

The national team player last weekend fired rounds of 71 and 73 for a total of 144 gross to win the Manchester Salver at Eldoret Golf Club. This is the club where Mudanyi and his brothers Boniface Simwa, Nelson Simwa and Nelson Mudanyi begun their golfing careers.

In September, Edwin, Owiti, Railway’s Samuel Njoroge and Limuru’s Paul Muchangi were invited to participate in the Uganda Open.
