Elisha Kasuku gestures during the interview today.


Veteran professional golfer Elisha Kasuku has called on Junior Golf Foundation (JGF) to change their mode of selecting the national junior team, to give room to brilliant juniors to represent the country.

Kasuku’s remarks come in the back drop of terrible performance by the Kenyan junior team at the Africa Junior Golf Challenge in Zambia recently.

All members of the team, Daniel Nduva, Mathew Wahoma, Adel Balala and Tahir Mohammed, come from Nyali Golf and Country Club and they finished sixth out 12 participating countries at the continental event.

“It sad to lose even to Uganda who don’t have a proper junior program compared to Kenya. With two slots up for grabs to feature at the Toyota Junior Golf World Cup in Japan for the first time, this was the best chance for the Kenyan juniors to qualify for the global show case and they wasted the golden chance by finishing sixth,” said Kasuku who has mentored many top golfers in the country.

He added: “It is not realistic to have a specific junior team with the same players year in, year out. Some one may be sick or even have a dip in form, so having a qualifying tournament that brings all juniors from all parts of the country to pick the national team from the best of the best is the only way that would guarantee a serious national team that can compete against the best out there.”

Royal, Muthaiga, Eldoret and Great Rift Club have produced a number of quality junior players who feel if given a chance they could represent the country. That was proved during the Easter tournament where juniors from Royal Nairobi Golf Club overwhelmed their Nyali opponents. cheap nike air max 90 online cheap nike air max 90 online
