GET IN: Dismas Indiza follows his shot at a past event. He took an early lead after the first round of the KCB Golf Tour at Thika Sports Club.


Long hitting pro Dismas Indiza took an early lead in the maiden event of the 2012 KCB Pro AM golf tour at the Thika Sports Club. Carding a 4 under par 68, Indiza took a two shot lead over his closest competitor Thika home professional Simon Ngigi.

Teeing off from the 10th tee, Indiza birdied the par 5 10th and 15th holes but lost the advantage with two bogeys on the par 3 16th hole and par 4 17th hole to card a 36 total on his first 9.

The second 9 played better for him starting off with an eagle on hole number one and birdies on the 2nd, 3rd and 8th holes. This impressive round was however dented on the par three 4th hole round with a bogey.

Away from Indizas impressive run, the other story for the day was the Disqualification of Kopan Timbe for signing for a wrong score. According to golf rules, each player must reconfirm his scores as marked in the card and signing for a wrong score results in a disqualification.

Playing against the elements of rough greens and a dry fairway, 28 golfers will tee off tomorrow for the second of three rounds that will culminate on Saturday with the pro/am event. The winner of this round stands to win Ksh. 600,000 and as it stands it is too close to call for who will carry home the winner’s purse.

Round two continues tomorrow on a day that will close with a free golf clinic for the Thika Club members and the KCB employees.

This year the tour will feature Thika, Muthaiga, Nyanza, Royal Nairobi, Nakuru and Nyali Golf and Country Club Mombasa. michaeltaschesale michaeltaschesale
