Greg Snow, prepares to putt during the Kenya Open at the Karen Golf and Country Club early this year.


Muthaiga’s professional Greg Snow finished the first round of the Dubai Creek Open in a joint 11th position after playing level par 71 at the par 71 Dubai Creek Golf and Yatch Club on Monday.

The tournament which is part of the Mena Tour will see participants rub shoulders in a 72-hole competition with a prize money of Sh4.4 million (50, 000 dollars).

Snow started off well, sinking back-to-back birdies on holes three and four , then sunk an eagle on hole 10 before picking more birdies on holes 15 and 17. He, however, had a double bogeys on holes six and seven and dropped a shots on holes nine and 11, to end the first day on level par 71.

“ The course is in fantastic condition and the greens are grainy and fast. It is playing pretty hard when the wind blows, I got to keep the ball below the hole,” said Snow.

He added: “ There are plenty of birdie opportunities out there it’s all about staying patient.”

Other Kenyans taking part in the competition are Royal Nairobi Club’s Hardeep Thethy who finished the first day on joint 36th position after managing four over par 75 and Sigona’s Ganeev Giddie who was placed 98th after playing 14 over par 85.

Snow was trailing overnight leader, Trevor Marshal from Canada by four strokes going into the second round. cheap air max mens cheap air max mens
