Mumias pro Dismas Indiza lines his putt during the second round of the KCB Golf Tour in Muthaiga today.


Hard hitting Mumias golfer Dismas Indiza showed why he emerged the winner in the first two legs of the ongoing KCB golf tour, when he leaped to from ninth position to end the second round of the Muthaiga leg placed second, a single shot behind home player Paul Thuo.

Indiza is now on two over par 144 after a false start on Wednesday when he played three over par 74. Today he sunk six birdies to end the par 71 course on one under par 70 and send clear signals of his intentions.

His huge leap was aided by the fact that day one leaders had a miserable round. Overnight leader Anil Shah of Royal Club, Muthaiga’s Thuo, John Wangae, Ajay Shah and Nicholas Rokoine will rue they chance to stretch the lead in the competition that saw only 15 players make the cut and enter the money bracket.

Shah played five over par 76 during today’s round, a stack contrast his first round score of three under par 68, to end the day on two over par 144.

During today’s round, Indiza who won the Royal and Nyanza legs had mixed fortunes in the first nine where he sunk four birdies on holes four, five, seven and eight but dropped shots on holes three and nine to end the first nine on two under par 34. He was unable to maintain the fine run into the second nine as he played one over par 36 for a total of one under par 70.

Thuo lost two shots today, finishing the day’s round at two over par 73 but still assumed the lead on the leader board. Thuo stands at one over par 143, a shot better than Indiza.

The Muthaiga player who turned pro in 2009 is exuding confidence following his ascendance to the top of score board and believes that concentration will be key to winning the tournament.

“I have not played such good golf for a long time, but I have been training hard and believe the results are not by fault. I intensified my training after Kenya Open but putting is still my biggest challenge,” said Thuo.

South Africa based Nelson Mudanyi, veterans Jacob Okelo, Richard Ainley, Ali Kimani and Charan Thethi were some of the major casualties who failed to make the cut.
