Nathan Kalumbu tees off at Windsor Golf and Country Club


Windsor’s  Humphrey Maina fired on all cylinders to lead his team to victory at the Dasani Golf Gala Championship held at the Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club.

The handicap-16 golfer, anchored the team of Mike Macharia, Mike Njau and Macaria Muotia to victory with a team total of 119 points. Maina opened his scoring with an impressive three-over gross score of 23 stable ford points on the front nine and following this up with a five-over gross score of 21 points on the back nine for an incredible total of 44 points. Speaking after his round, Maina said this was his best round in many years.

“My golf has been a little bit erratic, but today, it all came together and I was able to play very well,” Maina said. “This is definitely one of my best rounds in recent times and I could not have asked for it to come at a better time – the Dasani Golf Gala is the country’s top golf event and now that our team has qualified for the Grand Finale, I trust my swing will stay put!”

Muotia, a handicap-12 golfer contributed 39 points to the winning teams tally whilst Njau played 8-over gross for 36 points. Macharia, a former manager at Windsor could only manage 29 points and was duly named the team’s weakest link. Commenting on his new found status, Macharia promised to do better at the Grand Finale.

“I am saving my best for last! Today I was completely off color but come the Grand Finale, it is I who shall carry out team to victory and on to Atlanta,” Macharia said. “This is why the Dasani GolfGala is unique, despite my poor show here today, I will still get an opportunity to compete at the finals thanks to my team-mates good performance.”

The runner up team comprised of Reguindin Henry, Dinesh Shah, Charles Slater and Jeff Litzke. Litzke was the team’s anchor with 44 points, Henry contributed 37 points and Slater added 33 points for a team total of 114 points. Shah was the team’s weakest link with a commendable 33 points.

On a rather high scoring day, the individual winner was Eric Kimani with 42 points whilst Tasneem Padamshi was the individual runner up with 41 points. Meer Samji was the guest winner on 41 points whilst Joseph Waithaka was the guest runner up with 40 points.

Golf Park’s Joseph Bett was the guest third with 37 pints. Coca-Cola Central East and West Africa Business Unit President, Nathan Kalumbu was the staff winner with 32 points. Peter Njonjo, the General Manager East Africa was the staff runner up with 31 points.

The Dasani Golf Gala now heads to the Nyali Golf and Country Club where members from the Coastal Bottlers territory will compete for two qualification slots into the Grand Finale that will be held on the 27th of August 2011 at the Karen Country Club. The winning team from the 2011 Dasani Golf Gala will win an all expenses paid golf trip to the TOUR Championship to be held at the East Lake Golf Course in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

The winners will be VIP guests of the Coca-Cola company. michael kors handtasche michael kors handtasche
