“We really have to train hard now ahead of the finale, because there we will be playing against other very good player,” he added.
The team of Fred Kilonzi, Dee Kivuva, Jackson Nzuki and Larry Wambua also from Machalos, settled for the runners-up position, also amassing a combined score of 115 points, only beaten on countback.

Thika’s Larry Ngala won the guest after posting 38 points, he also won the nearest to the pin prize, while handicap three Ernest Mwanza posted the men’s longest drive and Jennifer Ngure had the ladies longest drive.
Speaking on behalf of the tournament sponsors, Bobby Macharia of Icon Sports Marketing Limited urged players to use the remaining three qualifiers to book a ticket for the Grand Finale which had a lot in store.

Macharia noted that 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 Macharia. Action now moves to the nine-hole Kisii Golf Club next weekend. doudouneparkacg doudouneparkacg
