In Summary
  • The handicap five Omooria rolled in a total of 11 pars and three birdies during this year’s tournament also known as the Year Opener, to beat Kenya Amateur Strokeplay and Nyali Open champion Daniel Nduva of Nyali by one point.

Kenya Railway Golf Club’s Adelbert Omooria is the 2018 “King of The Course" golf trophy champion sponsored this year by ICEA Lion and Gelian Hotel at the par 72 Machakos Golf Club course at the weekend.

The handicap five Omooria rolled in a total of 11 pars and three birdies during this year’s tournament also known as the Year Opener, to beat Kenya Amateur Strokeplay and Nyali Open champion Daniel Nduva of Nyali by one point.

“It was great playing with Nduva, his brother George Munyao and my club mate Paul Orawo,” said Omooria.

“They really pushed my game to the limit and I think that, in the process, they made me play well.’’ He bogeyed the second and fourth for two over par 19 points at the front nine.

He followed that with a bogey at the 13th and a double at the par four-15th.

However, Omooria managed to recover some shots with birdies at the 14th, 16th and 18th for 20 points at the back nine and a total of three over par 39 points.

“It’s nice starting the season with a win. This will really help me prepare well in the local and international events I intend to play this year," added a rather satisfied Omooria.
