Jacob Okelo in action during a recent event.


Golf Park’s resident professional Jacob Okello shot an impressive round of 4 under par 67 to take an early lead after the first day of the KCB Pro- Am Corporate Golf day at the par 72 Thika Golf club.

Okello who is the sole Pro to have finished second in the coveted Kenya Open, shot an impressive first nine with score of 1 over 37 and did even better in the second nine with a superb score of 6 under 30.

The course is playing well despite the sunny conditions. I look forward to an even better outing tomorrow so that I keep this guys at bay,” said Okello who is also the current chairman of the Professional Golfers of Kenya (PGK).

In second place was Vet Lab’s Nelson Simwa who shot 2 under par 70 to announce his intention for the Kshs. 2 million prize money on offer.

Six players tied in third position with a level par score, they included Nakuru based Richard Ainley, Stuart Cohen, Railway’s Njuguna Ngugi, David Wakhu of Golf Park, Sullivan Muthugia, and Limuru’s Joseph Karanja.

Tony Omuli and Nyanza Golf Club’s David Odhiambo tied on a score of one over par 73.

This year the tour has been renewed to feature amateurs in various golf clubs that the tournament will be staged.

Kenya Professional golfer captain John Wangai said there will be a cut after two rounds where only the top 12 Pros will proceed for the last two rounds and battle it out for the cash prizes.

Conspicuously missing in the top bracket was the long hitting Mumias resident Pro Dismas Indiza who has been doing very well in the past KCB Golf tours. Maybe it is too early to count him out as the Golfers still have another round to make cut before the last two final rounds to be played on Friday and Saturday.
