Kenya Golf Guide

National team player Nelson Simwa follows his tee shot during the Kenya Open Golf Championship in February.


Nelson Simwa is keen to emulate his elder brother Boniface by steering the Kenyan team to victory at the Africa Zone VI Golf tournament to be held at the Windhoek Golf Club in Namibia next week.

Simwa who left with the rest of the national team players today, was full of confidence and urged Kenyans to believe in the team, noting that they were capable of winning the title just like they won the East Africa Challenge last year when nobody knew they would.

“I really want to emulate my elder brother Boniface Simwa who has now turned professional, as he was part of the team that won the Zone VI title in Botswana in 2010,” said Simwa who currently plays off handicap +2.

He added: “My golf is currently very good despite my position in the Goty standings. Zone VI is a matchplay competition and not strokeplay and I can beat anyone, so the team spirit is high and we wre confident of returning the title home.”

Vet Lab’s Mathew Omondi who plays off +3 will captain the team which also comprises of Goty leader John Karichu, Justus Madoya, Abdulahi Galgao, William Odera, Tony Omuli, John Mburu and Mohit Mediratta.

“We practiced under the tutelage of coach Charles Farrar at Golf Park and swings were good. At the East African Challenge we had five juniors and we won, this time we have two, we are even stronger,” Simwa said.

The Kenyan players are expected to play the Namibia Open on Saturday and Sunday to feel the course before the tournament proper begins. nike huarache pas cher nike huarache pas cher
