RENOWNED golf coach Charles Farrar has refuted claims that poor selection of the national junior team resulted to the team’s poor performance at this year’s Africa Junior Golf Challenge in Zambia recently.

Farrar was reacting to Elisha Kasuku’s opinion that a qualifying event should have been used to select the best juniors in the country to do the job at the global level.

Kenya finished sixth in the competition, behind South Africa, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Re-Union Islands and Uganda.

“We just had a bad day in office during the tournament and for the team to finish sixth it doesn’t mean that we had bad selection of the squad. I don’t believe in a qualifying tournament to pick the national team, because a good example is when the US is picking it’s team to the Ryder Cup, would they leave Tiger Woods out of their team just because he played bad golf in a qualifying event?” posed Farrar was the junior team coach to the continental event.

He added: “Another example is reigning golfer of the year John Karichu who was omitted in the senior national team to the Africa Zone VI Championships because he did not play well in the qualifying tournament, but he came to prove that he was still the best amateur in the the country by winning the Winston Churchill tournament at Thika Club last weekend.”

Farrar exuded confidence on the youngsters and tipped them to perform better in future international tournaments after the Zambia experience.

The junior team to the continental competition comprised of Daniel Nduva, Mathew Wahoma, Adel Balala and Tahir Mohammed, all from Nyali Golf and Country Club. cheap air max 90 mens cheap air max 90 mens
