Richard Ainley follows his tee shot at a past tournament.


Nakuru’s professional golfer Richard Ainley has pulled out of this year’s Barclays Kenya Open Golf Championship set for Karen Club from Wednesday.

Ainley made the announcement to on Friday evening after being crowned the runner up at the third edition of the JTL Masters.

He said organizers of the tournament had made it too expensive for local players to feature at the tournament and if one failed to make the cut, would end up losing big time.

“I will not be playing at this year’s Kenya Open. I am serious and my decision is final,” said Ainley.

He added: “Playing at the Kenya Open one needs a minimum of Sh60, 000, because there is a registration fee of Sh20, 000, caddie fee for a whole week is Sh21, 000 and transport to and from the venue including food, the figure goes beyond Sh60, 000. Why should I pay to play at the Open?” nike air max femme pas cher nike air max femme pas cher
