Champions Muthaiga took an early lead as the 89th edition of the Keringet Tannahill Golf tournament teed off at the par 72 Royal Nairobi Club with 15 points on day one.

The Muthaiga team made up of veteran Evans Vitisia, Mwai Mbuthia, Kumar Dhall, Rajesh Bhabra, Kabugu Kagwe, Ashwin Gidoomal, John Gitonga, Bhavnish Chandaria, Tanvir Sodi and Allan Wairi beat Mombasa 8-0 and Sigona 7-1 to rule the roost on day one.

The reigning champions have won the coveted title three times in a row and will be keen to extend their dominance.

Royal had 13 points after beating Karen 8-0 and Western 5-3, while Western was third on seven points and Sigona tied with Limuru in position four on six points apiece.

Pre tournament favourites Vet Lab were disqualified from the tournament after they insisted on fielding three honorary members instead of the required two as per the tournament’s rules.

“We have to adhere to the tournament rules and there was no way we could allow a team to have more than two honorary members in their side. The tournament is surposed to be fun and for players and fans to enjoy,” said Royal Nairobi Golf Club’s assistant captain Jack Okuku.

Today, the hosts Royal plays against Mombasa and Limuru, while Muthaiga will be against Railway and Western and Karen tackle Sigona. Royal will lock horns with arch rivals Muthaiga on the tournament’s final day, a round that will be a must watch. pandora joyas pandora joyas
