Great Rift Valley Club golfer Justus Madoya resisted stiff challenge to emerge the winner of this year’s Manchester Salver golf tournament at the nine-hole Eldoret Golf Club at the weekend.

The feat, however, saw Madoya remain perched on position three in the Gofler Of The Year series table, but closed the gap of the top two after he picked 15.50 points from the leg to amass a total of 236.75 points from 16 series events.

Limuru’s John Karichu still leads the pack on 297.50 points, while Kenneth Bollo of Royal Nairobi Golf Club is second on 257.25 points.

Fans were treated to a thrilling final round when Madoya tied on five over 147 with Nandi Bears player Robert Kasi and David Sakwa who is a caddie at Eldoret club during the Mediheal sponsored golf forcing the KGU officials led by vice chairman Muchau Githuka, Andrew Chelogoi and club captain Joseph Watunu to propose sudden death playoff on holes 17 and 18 to pick the winner.

Sakwa failed on the first encounter with five strokes as Kasi and Madoya went to the wire before Kasi missed a putt, providing a good winning opportunity for Madoya.

The two day event brought Madoya to cloud nine when he carded two rounds total of five over par, registering his second win in the Goty series.

Madoya lauded the conditions of the course saying the greens were running nicely as the course suited his play.

Am happy to register my second win in the Goty series this year and I want to go ahead and win the overall title,” said Madoya.

During the first round played on Saturday, Madoya played five over 77 finishing in fourth position but he returned with a bang on the second day with one under 70 to tally his points to 221 and set the tempo ahead of East Africa challenge mid this month. cheap nike air max 90 mens cheap nike air max 90 mens
