PLOTTING: James Lorum (L) and Greg Snow during the KCB 5th leg Golf Tour at Kigali Golf Club.


Greg Snow’s resilience and consistency saw him triumph with a seven stroke lead after round four of the KCB Rwanda Open in Kigali Golf Club, Rwanda. Snow, in his quest to seal his status as a force to reckon with, hit two-under on day four to reach eleven-under overall, after holding the lead for three rounds

The win, which is Greg’s second after he won round two of the KCB East African Golf Tour at Muthaiga, saw the youngster pocket Kshs 168,300. “ My consistency of always being on the fairway and on the green paid off despite the tough conditions of the course,” Said Greg who is set for the Burundi Open next week.

On the first nine, Greg bogeyed hole three and six after hitting left to the hazard and missing the green by 60 yards respectively but recovered with an earlier birdie on the fourth and repeated the same on the seventh and ninth. At the back nine, he rolled two birdies but three-putted the last hole for a bogey.

Long-hitter Dimas Indiza, who has been surging to the top after a joint-fifth on day one, reached five-under overall to romp home on position two earning himself Kshs 123, 250. Indiza, hit double bogeys on the seventh, eighth and eleventh to return a score of one over par 73 on round four.

“ I dropped several shots today especially at par three hole eleven where I was two on and continued to putt thrice, this really costed me the much needed strokes,” Indiza alleged.

However, it was a boundless final day for left-hander Richard Ainley, who sunk seven birdies to gain the best score of the day with three-under par 69. This projected him to the third position after holding a share of four-under par 284 to take home Kshs 92,650.

Ainley, began the outward nine by bogeying four holes but it is at the inward nine where he reaped fortunes after consecutive birdies on the tenth, eleventh, twelfth, then fourteenth and eighteenth. However, day one overnight leader failed to maintain the lead dropping to fourth position with a stroke behind Ainley to net Kshs 73,100.

Fifth placed was Brian Njoroge followed by Rwanda’s Emmanuel Ruterana who jointly tied with Hardeep Thethy on postion six receiving a token of Kshs 42,500. Another Rwandan, Jean Baptiste came in at position eight followed by a joint tie of SA based Anil Shah and Muthaiga’s Nicholas Rokoine. The four rounds-event was the fifth series of the KCB East African Golf Tour that saw over 35 elite golfers from the region participate. The next edition of the regional tournament will be staged in Nakuru Golf club in June.
