Nyali Club resident professional Kopan Timbe during a recent event. He will be among the favourites at his home course.


The battle for cash and Order of Merit points in the on going 2014 KCB Golf Challenge moves to Nyali Golf and Country Club for the fourth and final leg of the tour from Tuesday to Friday.
Unlike in the previous three legs, in Nyali a lucrative prize money package of Ksh 3million will be up for grabs and so are the valuable points towards the Order of Merit accolade.
A field of 30 professionals including the reigning order of merit winner Dismas Indiza are expected for the action.

Cut throat competition will be guaranteed since the last two legs of the tour in Royal and Nyanza witnessed two different winners.
At Royal where the action was held between July 8 and 11, Indiza despite hitting a string of bogeys at the back nine which resulted into a one over par 73, he still clinched the top prize in the second leg of the Tour series.
The long hitting Indiza won by five shots from his closest follower Muthaiga’s Nicholas Rokoine and pocketed Sh145,000 plus 19 points towards the Order of Merit. Vet Lab’s Brian Njoroge was third on 291 withe home pro David Wakhu and South Africa based Stefan Andersen tied on 293 in fourth place.
When the action moved to Nyanza Club on August 15 and 16, it was Ngige’s turn to rule the roost. This time the Thika pro who also won the first leg at Thika Greens, fired his second 67 for a total of six under par total of 134 to take home the top prize of Sh117, 000 in the third leg of the tour.
Ngige, a two times winner of the KCB Tour Order of Merit beat Indiza by two shots in Nyanza, remains a strong candidate for this year’s title as well.
This year, the finale will for the first time be held at the Great Rift Country Club between November 14 and 15 and the prize money for the event is Sh500, 000, with a bonus of Sh200, 000. mens nike air max 90 mens nike air max 90
