Zimbabwe golfer Nyasha Muyambo with the winners’ prize at Limuru Club on Wednesday.


Zimbabwe golfer Nyasha Muyambo is the Leg Two winner of the Safari Tour Series held at the Par 72 Limuru Country Club after amassing 282 total with an under 6 to a par score.

The 33-year-old Pro player with Chapman Golf Club in Harare closed Day 4 with an impressive 69 score having struggled on day two having posted 75. On Day One, the debutant winner [WK1] who took home 60 points and Shs 300,000 had a score of 71 on the board. It was a double joy for Team Zimbabwe who had Visitor Mapwanya finishing the leg second placed with a score of 287 and one under par with a cheque token of Shs 200,000 plus 48 points in the bag.

Speaking to the Press afterwards during the Award ceremony, the soft-spoken Muyambo was elated

with his overall play reserving special praise for his teammates Robson Chinhoi and Visitor

Mapwanya. ‘‘There is always a first time for everything and today I am extremely happy with my

performance, especially with the push by my teammates. My putting and pinpoints were great and thus helped my game. I want to thank the other players for a great showing and they pushed me well. I wish to thank the Safari Tour Management and the Limuru Club for a great tournament. My focus is on working hard to make the cut for the Kenya Open so I look forward to the Vipingo Series that is next online.’

Mapwanya amassed 48 points and Sh 200,000 having had two brilliant outings on Day 1 and Day 4. On the opening day, he had 69 scores but had a terrible two days following with 75 and 76 next before closing out on 67 to emerge with a total 287 score. Kenya’s top player was Mike Kisia of VetLab Club who finished on level par after a joint 288 score alongside Robson Chinhoi.

Kisia had an indifferent run in the four days with a score of 75 on Day 1 and then 24 hours later he

posted 69 on the board. The former VetLab Open winner then had a score of 73 on Day 3 and eventually a 71 score on the final day. His last nine holes on the last day were his recovery after starting out badly on the greens.

Zimbabwean Chinhoi who was fourth overall but tied on 288 points, had an unstable tournament after the first leg in the Uganda Open where he won last month with a score of 277 and 11 under par. The 31-year-old who also calls Royal Harare Golf Club home, was sluggish after his outing in Limuru which saw him on a Par + 3 finish. ´Obviously, it is disappointing but it is what it is. I did my best out there but somehow my putting was not that good. The course was tricky for me  even though the previous days were solid.”
