Golfer Robson Chinhoi yesterday scooped his third Safari tour title at the just ended 2021 Safari Tour Pro Golf Series at the par 71 Nyali Golf and Country Club in Nyali, Kenya yesterday, The Star reports.
The series which Chinhoi won for the third time is being used as the European Tour Magical Kenya Open according to the publication. Speaking about his victory Chinhoi said:
I am hitting the ball pretty well so far but putting was bad and it has actually been bad since I went home after the 2019/2020 season considering I didn’t play or practise
It’s a playable course apart from a few holes which were a bit tricky. All in all, I am happy I am all set for the Magical Kenya Open though I will have to work on my putting to make sure I am ready
According to the publication Chinhoyi who won the title ahead of Dismas Indiza walked away with 150 000 Kenyan Shillings ($1365) while Indiza and Greg Snow who came second and third walked away with 90 000 Kenyan Shillings each:
At the back nine, Chinhoi birdied the 11th and parred all the way up to the 18th, where he had a long putt for a birdie. He missed the birdie plus a par to finish the round with a bogey and one over par 72 which gave him an all round total of one over par 285 to pocket Sh150,000
Meanwhile, a Zimbabwean golfer last month won the Nomads under 15 tournament in South Africa.
