Jose-Filipe Lima from Portugal & his amateur counterpart Paul Kamau won Coca-Cola sponsored PRO-AM with a score of 14-under 58 at the Karen Country Club on Tuesday.
For the success, Lima earned 600 Euros (approximately Sh60, 233) for victory in the first PRO-AM, which will inspire him ahead of the European Challenge Tour Opener that commences on Thursday.
The winning pair was five shots ahead of the second placed England’s Charlie Ford and amateur W.N.Ngaruiya who had a combined score of nine under. Sean Einhaus from Germany & George Makori and Welshman Phillip Price & Moses Karanu who had a back-nine score of 33 carded nine-under apiece to finish third and fourth on count back.

The field also had 11 locals pros including Greg Snow and Dismas Indiza who finished on -3 under.

“Kenyans can do well in the competition. We expect a good event. I have been to South Africa courtesy of KCB and Mumias and played golf for a full month,” said Dismas Indiza about the prospects for Kenyans at this year’s Open.

The format for the Pro-am changed this year where for the first time two pros played in one match with two amateurs unlike in the past where one pro played with two amateurs.

The Open which is the longest running event in the ETC becomes the first event of the 2015 tour due to the cancellation of the Madeira Islands Open which is held in Portugal. air max 95 air max 95
