In Summary
  • At Thika Greens Golf Resort, the Inter- Counties Golf Challenge enters its semi -finals stage while the par 72 Thika Sports Club will be the scene for the Thika Sports Club Health Club day.
  • Vet Lab Sports Club will meanwhile host the Foundation Day event on Friday.

The chase for slots in next year’s Magical Kenya Open, is on this weekend at the par 72 Royal Nairobi Golf Club course.

The 2019/2020 Kenya Open Golf Limited-organised Safari Tour marks its third leg at the club following the successful Uganda Open last month.

During the Uganda Open at the Lake Victoria Serena Golf Resort in Kigo Uganda, the long hitting professional Dismas Indiza was the best placed Kenyan and member of the Safari Tour in fourth place after posting a four rounds total of three under par 285 gross.

That earned him 100 points towards the Safari Tour’s “Race to Magical Kenya Open’’ since the overall winner of the Uganda Open, which became part of the Safari Tour this year, Zambia’s Madalitso Muthiya is not a member of the Tour.

This also placed Indiza in fifth place in the Order of Merit with 105 points which is an average of 52.5.

In form Indiza will definitely be one of the players to watch in the Sh1 million event at Royal where he usual plays well.

CAPTAIN'S PRIZE

To take him on, will be the current Safari Tour series leader Greg Snow of Muthaiga, who won the first leg at Nyali in August.
