WILL HE BE SECOND TIME LUCKY: James Karanja receives the winners award after clinching the Mumias Sugar Golf event at Limuru Golf Club. He turned pro a month ago.


A total of 36 local professional golfers will be rubbing shoulders at the Professional Golfers of Kenya (PGK) Pro Am event to be held at the nine hole Railway Golf Club from Thursday to Saturday.

According to Charan Thethy, the immediate former PGK Chairman and the coordinator of the tournament, the three days event has been sponsored by friends of Kenya Railways Golf Club and Salmer Fitness Centre and that it was expected to act as a build up for the local pros ahead of February’s Kenya Open Golf Championships.

“The pros will be playing for a total of Ksh2 million with the overall winner set to walk away with Ksh400, 000. There is an appearance fee of Ksh10, 000 per player in addition to the prize money so no player would go away with nothing,” said Charania.

He added: “Tournament sponsors have also invited the top 10 amateurs going by the Golfer Of The Year rankings and they will play alongside the professionals.”

The event is expected to be an acid test for James Karanja who turned professional in style by winning the Mumias Golf Series tournament in his first event as a professional. Other players who will be in action are this season’s Order of Merit winner Nicholas Rokoine, Nelson Mudanyi who turned professional recently after returning from a golf course in United States of America and Dismas Indiza among others. maillot de foot pas cher maillot de foot pas cher
