Dimas Indiza with the winning prize at Karen Club today.


It was a roller coaster for Mumias Golf Club’s Dismas Indiza at the Par 72 Karen Country Club when he came from behind once again to stun Ronald Rugumayo of Uganda by two shots and clinch the Karen Safari Tour title by six shots in the final round after hitting an impressive -18.

As a result of the win, Indiza maintained the first sport in the overall standings after the final Safari Tour leg where eight Kenyan players and two foreigners who made their cut to the prestigious Magical Kenya Open were announced.

At today’s action, Indiza grabbed the lead from Rugumayo in the front nine where he posted an eagle at number two and a birdie at number eight whilst his rival of the day Ronald Rugumayo of Uganda bogeyed number four and nine to forfeit the lead.

In the back nine Indiza fired a total of three birdies and a single bogey while Rugumayo bogeyed numbers 9,13,16 and 17 and two birdies at number 12 and 18.

Dismas Indiza’s comeback play came into play in the final round as was in the case at the Par 72 Limuru Country Club and the Uganda Open where his adrenaline-charged comeback turned the game from Visitor Mapwanya and Ronald Rugumayo in Uganda, respectively.

After the win, Dismas Indiza said “It was not easy playing against my juniors, they must know ‘Mzee’ is around and I must show the boys the way and if we play this way in the Kenya Open then we will have good prospects. The course was up to the standard like the Kenya Open and we must all turn up to support the boys to win the Kenya Open.”

The Chairman Professional Golfers of Kenya CJ Wangai said “Thank you KOGL and Karen Country Club for a wonderful course, the greens were fantastic, firm, and quick.”

The title sponsor SBM Bank head of communications and marketing Magdalene Mulandi said “It has been an amazing time being part of the Safari tour and all the golfers put up a spectacular show. Golf is in our DNA and we are happy to be here.”

Meanwhile, Visitor Mapwanya and Ronald Rugumayo will be the internationals to play in the Kenya Open. Rugumayo’s 18th-hole birdie was crucial for his entry into the Kenya Open after the shot beat fellow countryman Dave Kamulindwa by a point on the overall points.

Joining Dismas Indiza in the incoming MKO is Samuel Njoroge, Greg Snow, Daniel Nduva, Njoroge Kibugu, Mike Kisia, Mohit Mediratta, and Mutahi Kibugu in that respect.
