Dismas Indiza follows his tee shot during the first KCB Golf Tour leg at Royal Club in February.


Dsimas Indiza carried his form from the last tournament at Royal Club two months ago to take an early lead at the KCB Advantage Banking golf event at the par 70 Nyanza Golf Club yesterday.

The Mumias resident professional played six under par 64 to carry a four shot lead into today’s second round.

He started on a wrong note with a bogey on the par five first hole, then picked three back-to-back birdies on the par five fifth hole, par four hole six and par three hole seven, before dropping another shot on the par four hole nine for a first nine score of 34.

In the second nine, the hard hitting golfer started with a birdie on the par five 10th, before picking four back-to-back birdies on the par three 13th, par five 14th , par four 15th and par three 16th for a score of 30.

“The rough was tough today and I expect the same conditions in the remaining rounds. The first nine was very tough for me today, in the ninth hole I played a bogey after my ball went to the rough and coming out was crazy, I hope to play better in the remaining rounds,” said Indiza.

Home player David Odhiambo who was crowned this year’s JTL Masters winner in February, tied in the second spot with Thika’s Simon Ngige on two under par 68.

“Today I had two bogeys. I missed too many putts, I could have played six under like Indiza or even better. I am going to work on my putting and hope to maintain a consistent score of four under in the remaining rounds to win the event,” said Odhiambo.

Nakuru’s Richard Ainley was fourth on one under par 69, while Windsor’s Riz Charania who is also the Professional Golfers of Kenya (PGK) Chairman finished fifth on level par 70.

PGK captain Peter Njagi said today’s tee off was at 10am and noted that there will be a cut after today’s round, with only the top 15 players making it to the final rounds.
