Richard Ainley lines his putt during a past KCB Golf Tour event. He currently holds a six shot lead at Royal Club.


Left handed pro Richard Ainley extended his lead by six shots on day two of the KCB Golf Tour as 14 professionals made the cut for the remaining two rounds at the par 72 Royal Nairobi Golf Club.
After two rounds of brilliant display, Ainley leads the pack with an impressive 8 under par 136.
Ainley was all smiles after day 2 action which saw pros contend with scorching sunny conditions: “Its been a good two rounds for me. Playing 67 on Tuesday and 69 today makes me feel happy by my general performance. My score today means that I will play under little pressure on the last two rounds,” said Ainley.
Long-hitter Dismas Indiza shot a similar round of 71 on day two to settle for joint second place with Thika Sports Club’s Simon Ngige on 2 under par 142.
Ngige who shot two under on Tuesday was left to rue the two boogies he collected on the last two holes with a level par round on day 2.
“I had some very bad chips on hole 8 and of course the boogies I picked on holes 17 and 18 messed me up. Generally its not that bad as we have two more days of play to lower the score,” said Ngige.
After playing two under Tuesday, Royal’s Greg Snow played one over par 73 in round two for a total of 1 under par 143. Snow is lying fourth.
“I’m happy that we professionals are putting up some good preps ahead of the Kenya Open. I think the number of tournaments we are playing will help us do well,” said Snow.
Ainley started off on a modest note with eight pars and 1 burdie on the first nine for a total of 36. It was indeed in the second nine that Ainley showed what stuff he is made of.
The Nakuru man sunk in a total of 4 birdies on holes 11, 14, 15 and 17 top return a score of 33 in the second 9. It could have gone even lower for Ainley had he not dropped a shot in hole 13.
Boniface Simwa who was lying second on Day 1 with 4 under got a rude shock with an excruciating round of 5 over par 77 for a total of 143.
Play resumes at 8am on Thursday.
The first groups at the first and 10th tee begins at 8am.
The KCB Golf Tour 2015 heads to Thika sports club on Aprill 14-17. May 14-16 takes the event to Nyanza Golf Club while July 2-4 will see golfers head to Nakuru Golf Club. The grand finale will be atNyali Golf Club on August 5-8.
