Kenya Golf Guide

Nelson Mudanyi follows his tee shot during this year’s Kenya Open event. He has taken a joint leadership at the on going PGK Pro Am event at Railway Golf Club.


Former golfer of the year Nelson Mudanyi who recently turned pro tied on the top of the leader board after the first round of a three-day PGK Pro Am competition going on at the nine-hole Railway Golf Club.

The duo shot one under par 69 to carry a slim single shot lead going into the second round where more action is guaranteed.

Nakuru based Richard Ainley played level par to stay in the third overnight spot and predicted a close contest in the tournament. The event has a prize money of Ksh400, 000 at stake.
Amateurs also gave a good account of themselves in yesterday’s play with three of them occupying the top 10 slots.
National team players Mathew Omondi and Nelson Simwa both of Vet Lab played one over yesterday to wrap up Day one play jointly 4th along with Rizwan Charania.
Last year’s golfer of the year winner J. W. Karanja proved he’s got quite some nerve when he shot two over to settle for a joint seventh place with Golf Park’s resident pro Jacob Okello. Round 2 continues today.
The event is part of the preparation process for top Kenyan pros and amateurs ahead of the 2013 Barclays Kenya Open.
The event is also set to offer cash incentives to the pros who are playing for a total of Ksh 2 million with the winner getting Ksh 400, 000.
According to PGK sources, there is an appearance fee of Ksh 10, 000 per pro.  In addition to prize money, senior pros will be given a prize for winning in their category.
