Karen’s John Musunga steered his team to victory during the tenth leg of the on going Dasani Golf Gala held at the par 72 Karen Golf and Country Club on Saturday and in the process also booked a ticket to the tournament’s grand finale slated for September 29 at the same venue.
Musunga playing off handicap eight anchored his team with 39 points while handicap 14 David Kiambi contributed 34 points and F. G. Kariuki
playing off handicap seven amassed 34 points as the team accrued a team score of 107 points to rule the roast. Lawrence Kiambi playing off handicap 14 was the team’s weakest link on 32 points.
The team of Anthony Murage, Anthony Gacheru, Anthony Mogere and Clive Davies posted the second best combined score of 106 points to also book a ticket to the grand finale. Murage playing off handicap four contributed 35 points to the team, the same as handicap eight Gacheru and handicap six Mogere. Davis playing off handicap three was the team’s weakest link as he could only manage 32 points, but he vowed to bounce back and steer his team to victory during the finale that would be held at the same venue.
So far 80 players have already qualified for the finale after the Karen round. The other qualifiers were picked from qualifiers held in Kiambu, Thika, Vet Lab, Railway, Windsor, Royal, Nyali, Lesiure Lodge and Nakuru.
The reserve team at the Karen leg was made up of Maina Karanja (40), John Katiku (33), Alex Kobia (32) and Njee Muturi (32). They amassed a team score of 105 points.
D. Kangethe playing off handicap 16 won the guest prize on 38points, while handicap 21 Philip Otolo emerged the junior winner on 38 points and Kibuchi Kimani had the nearest to the pin.
Anthony Mogere won the men’s longest drive and Eunice Maranya won the women’s longest drive.
The grand prize this year will see the winning team of four players travel to Dubai to attend the Grand Finale of the European Tour, the DP World Tour Championships at the Jumeirah Golf Estates. While in Dubai, they will also have the opportunity to see Europe’s top 60 money earners on the 2012 Order of Merit battle it out for a 1.3 million winner’s cheque.
“In addition, they will play at some of the best golf courses in the region, including the Dubai Creek Course and the challenging Faldo Course at the Emirates Golf Club, a course designed by former world number 1 and six-time major Champion Sir Nick Faldo,” said Peter Njonjo, Coca Cola regional manager who graced the prize giving ceremony.
Action now moves to Nyeri and Sigona next week where eight more qualifiers would be picked. pandora pendientes pandora pendientes
