Alfred Nandwa in action during a recent event.


On form amateur golfer Alfred Nandwa seems set for the East Africa Challenge to be held in Addis Ababa Ethiopia at the end of this month, after winning the Challenge qualifier by three shots at the Thika Sports Club on Tuesday.

The Railway Golf Club player, playing off handicap +1, built on his first two rounds lead to win the 54-hole qualifier on a score of four under par 212 (71, 68, 73).

Former junior champion and Nyali player Daniel Nduva playing off handicap 1 was second on one under par 215 made up of 71 gross in the first round, 73 gross in the second round and 71 in the third and final round.

Third position was shared by Vet Lab’s Edwin Mudanyi and Golf Park’s John Lejirma on three over par 219. Mudanyi playing off scratch had rounds of 71, 73 and 75, while handicap 2 Lejirma returned rounds of 73, 73, 73.
