It will be a brothers’ show at inaugural KCB Karen Masters golf tournament set for next weekend at Karen golf club.
Simwa brothers Boniface and Nelson will be facing off at the Karen Masters ahead of the Kenya Open a week later at Muthaiga.
Boniface, the elder brother of Nelson said it has been a dream come true to play alongside his young brother he nurtured into the golfing world.
“It has always been a dream for me to play with my brother. We have never played together and the only time we played together was in a training programme but not in any competition,” said Boniface, the only professional golfer at Eldoret golf club.
Vet Lab’s Nelson turned professional in 2015 after winning Amateur golfing event, the Golfer of the Year event to join his brother Boniface in the top league.
“I know he is a good golfer and any time I have been wishing we play together but it has been hard. My request is that we are put in the same flight on the opening day but I know it may not be possible but if we make a cut on round three, we may be put together,” added Boniface while training in Eldoret ahead of Masters’ event.
The duo are among the 23 golfers who have made a cut into the three day event that includes Nakuru’s Greg Snow, Vet Lab’s Mathew Omondi, Golfer Park’s Jacob Okello, David Wakhu (Royal), Njugun Ngugi (Nyali), David Odhiambo (vet Lab), Justus Madoya (Great Rift), Nicholas Rekoine (Muthaiga), Rizwan Charania (Windsor), David Opati (Windsor), Richard Ainley (Nakuru), Simon Ngige (Thika Sports) among others.
