FOCUSED: Railway's John Wangai follows his swing at a past Tusker Malt event. The action moves to Kiambu Golf Club this weekend.

The fourth leg of the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival tees off this weekend at the 9-hole par-72 Kiambu Golf Club, as the carnival picks up pace, with over 130 golfers drawn up for the tournament.

Action begins at 7.30am to end a little after 11am with the afternoon tee off scheduled for 2pm to end slightly after 6pm.

Club Captain Patrick Wanjohi says the course is ready for Saturday’s challenge and cites possible downpour as the only challenge anticipated. “The course is in good condition, the greens and fairways are great and the roughs have been cut. I am certain the players will enjoy the course,” says Wanjohi.

Wanjohi adds that the field of golfers drawn for this event consists of strong players and the tournament is anyone’s game. “The unpredictability makes it even more interesting!” Wanjohi says.

The ongoing Tusker Malt Golf Carnival has attracted a lot of interest from amateur golfers across the country with a field of 450 players having participated so far in the three events that took place at the Kenya Railway Golf Club, Machakos and Njoro in the past two months.

The new format of play “The Four Ball Better Ball” synonymous with international golfing circles notwithstanding, players have mastered their way to scoring highly with the highest so far being the team of Joseph Murungi and General Munyao of Machakos Country Club with 48 points.

With just a point shy of the Machakos pair is the team of Captain Nthiomi Majau and Walter Onyino who posted a team score of 47 points at the inaugural tournament held at the Railway Golf Club in September.

The duo of Mandip Sahota and Sazai Singh of Njoro are so far in third place in terms of winning team scores ranking. They missed out on top position after they were disqualified for breaching club rules of play at the Tusker Malt Golf Carnival tournament held at the 9-hole par-73 Njoro Country Club early this month.

The carnival is scheduled to visit 30 golf clubs and engage some 10, 000 golfers from Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Rwanda in a regional tour aimed at promoting bonding and friendship, the brand value of Tusker Malt.

The fifth event in the carnival that is gathering ground fast, heads to Eldoret Golf Club where Kitale and Nandi Bears will lock horns. Ten more events are lined up to take place all across the country. michael kors el corte ingles michael kors el corte ingles
