Muthaiga's Nicholas Rokoine prepares to tee at the JTL Masters. He was crowned the overall winner after four days of intense competition.


Muthaiga’s Nicholas Rokoine is the new JTL Masters Golf champion after being crowned the champion at the par 71 Muthaiga Golf Club, the last tournament for the local pros ahead of next week’s Kenya Open Golf Championships.

The Muthaiga resident pro ended the tournament on two under par 282 (67, 69, 71, 75), despite playing a final poor round of four over par 75 and walked home with the winner’s prize of Sh300, 000.

Rokoine said he missed the fairway twice that contributed to his woes.

At yesterday’s final round, Rokoine who started with a win in the first round before losing the second round but recovered to resume the lead in the third, he had a poor start dropping a shot on the par three second hole but dropped back to back shots on the par five hole four and par three hole five, before recovering with a back to back birdies on the par four hole six, par five seven and par four hole eight for a first nine score of 38.

In the second nine, Rokoine who won the KQ Pro Am a fortnight ago dropped two shots on the par five hole 10 and par four hole 12 for a score of 37. Windsor’s Riz Charania tied in the second position with Stephan Andersen on level par 284 and each pocket Sh175, 000 for their feat.

Charania played a round of four over 75 yesterday after he dropped three shots on the par four hole nine. He had previously dropped shots on the first and fifth holes to finish the first nine on a score of 41. He, however, tried to recover in the second nine where he sunk a birdie on the par five 18th to register a score of 34.

Andersen on the other hand posted one under par 70 picking three birdies and drooping two shots. Last year’s winner Greg Snow tied in the fourth spot with David Odhiambo on one over par 285. canada goose deutschland canada goose deutschland
