Simon Ngugi follows his tee shot during the sixth leg of the Barclays Golf Circuit at the Thika Sports Club. He emerged the junior winner.


A record field of 248 players will on Saturday converge at the par 72 Sigona Golf Club for the seventh leg of the ongoing Barclays Golf Circuit seeking tickets to play at the tournament’s grand finale slated for February.
Tomorrow’s event comes two weeks after a successful tour of Thika where home player Watson Burugu playing off handicap eight posted 39 stableford points to lead a group of nine qualifiers from Thika, Ruiru and Kiambu to next year’s finale.
The seventh leg of the circuit promises stiff competition as only limited slots will be available for finale out of the large field, the biggest ever witnessed since the circuit started.
Sigona captain Gikuo Ndirangu has promised players a good round, noting that the course is in a great condition and that the fairways and greens are well manicured.
He, however, warned against the roughs saying that they will be torturous for who ever finds himself there.
Barclays is working with Kenya Golf Union to raise resources throughout the circuit that will go towards supporting charitable initiatives that enhance the livelihoods of communities through
financial literacy, enterprise skills and life skills.
Commenting on the weekend tourney, Barclays Bank of Kenya Managing Director Jeremy Awori said, “The pro-am is a dream for any amateur Golfer where they get an opportunity to play with top European professionals that grace the Barclays Kenya Open. Courtesy of Barclays Hospitality, they will also all get season tickets and VIP guest passes to the Barclays Hospitality Tent at the 2014 Barclays Kenya Open.”
From Sigona, the action will move to Nyali Golf and Country Club on November 9 to be followed with Windsor Golf County Club on November 22 for the Barclays CSR Golf. The grand finale will be in Karen Golf Club on February 22. nike air max cheap uk mens nike air max cheap uk mens
