International player David Opati, plans to carry local form to this year’s East Africa Challenge Trophy in Burundi after he won the Manchester Salver event at the Eldoret Golf Club on Saturday.

Opati who was under pressure after having a lackluster performance in the last Golfer Of The Year tournament, the Karen Amateur Strokeplay Championship, recovered to comfortable win the Manchester Salver event, the second event in the Goty series that he has won this year. The first one he won was the Coast Open.

The Golf Park player, managed four under gross in the two day event, scoring 67 and 71 on both days to consolidate his position at the top of the table of standings with only two events to, the Uhuru Shield and the Nyali Open.

He was in high spirits ahead of the national team’s departure to Bujumbura where he will be captaining Kenya as they seek to retain the regional trophy that they won in Arusha last year.

“I currently playing very well and my team mates are also enjoying the golf of their lives , so the best thing to do is just to carry our local form to Bujumbura and we will easily retain the regional trophy. We still remain the team to beat in this region,” said Opati who currently plays off handicap +3.

The team comprising of Opati, Vet Lab’s duo of Nelson Simwa (+1) and Mathew Omondi (+1), Railway’s John Wangai (+2), Sigona’s Kush Mediratta (8) and Nyali’s Daniel Nduva, Mathew Wahome, Adel Balala and Abraham Abdullahi was expected to leave the country on Monday morning. maillot de foot pas cher maillot de foot pas cher
