Mumias Golf Club’s Dismas Indiza  clinched the third leg of the Rapid Tour Golf series  at Muthaiga Golf Club today. The long hitting Indiza shot two over par 73 for a three rounds total of 209 to win the top cash prize of Sh72,000.

Currently preparing for next week’s Nyali Open in Mombasa, the Mumias Golf Club based Indiza beat home pro Nicholas Rokoine by six shots during the third leg of the tour sponsored by Rapid Communications, Kussco limited, Heri heights and Star Times, to claim the third leg.

And he was heading for even a wider margin if he did not double bogey the par three-13th a hole that has proved a thorny to him over the past five years. It was the same 13th which denied him a decent finish in the Kenya Open a few years ago after hitting to the water twice. “It was very windy and thought nine iron would be fine’’ said Indiza who had earlier bogeyed the other par three(11th) having birdied the 10th. “Today everything was not just working not for me but basically most of us’’ added Indiza who was two under par after four holes at the front nine where he birdied the third and fourth before dropping a shot at the sixth. The double bogey at the 13th did not however discourage him as he parred the remaining holes for one over par 73 and a total of 209 to take home the first prize of Sh72,000. Rokoine on the other hand made only one birdie at the seventh, a birdie that was however washed away by two back to back bogeys at the last two holes of the front nine and two more at the back nine’s 11th and 14th.   “Nothing worked for me today, not driving, putting or chipping. Every part of my game was just bad’’ said Rokoine who shot four over par 75 to wind up in second place with a total of 215 gross. The best round of the final round, a two under par 69 was posted by Royal Nairobi’s Greg Snow who moved from ninth to eventually tie in third place with Nyanza Golf Club’s David Odhiambo who shot one over par 72 for 216. Snow dropped a shot at the first hole but managed to recover at the ninth, then birdied the 10th, 12th, 16th and 18th against three other bogeys at the 13th, 14th and 15th.  Odhiambo birdied the third and fourth, double-bogeyed the eighth, and picked up two more bogeys at the 11th and 16th. Three others including day one leader Frank Matilo who leveled the course for 217 to tie with Brian Njoroge of Vet Lab and Golf Park’s Jacob Okello. A total of 33 players had been listed to play in the 54-hole event though its only 12 who made it to the final round of the Sh300,000 event.
