Tanzanian Madina Iddi produced a superlative performance to win the Eldoret Ladies Open golf tournament played on nine-hole Eldoret Golf club on Saturday 8th in the Medheal Group of Hospitals sponsored tournament.
The Arusha based golfer carded a solid 39 stable ford points to emerge victoriously, lacking respect for home players who managed third and 4th positions ahead of Sunday’s medal play.
Teeing off handicap 2, Iddi started on a high note, hitting a birdie in hole one par five, dropped one in the second par 3, recovered with pars on three and four on pars four respectively.
Dropped one five par three, fired a birdie in 6, bogeyed in 7th and levelled in 8 and 9 for 18 points for a total of 21 points to seal her victory away from her home.
In the back nine, she parred in 10th, birdied in 11th and 12th pared in 13 before shooting a birdie in 14 followed with a par in 15th, birdied in 16th dropped one in 17th and concluded with a par.
Muthaiga’s R. Mkok was squeezed into the second position, losing to Madina on countback as Eldoret’s Rosemary Cuthbert completed the podium with a point less.
Mildred Natecho and Rhoda Chemayiek recorded 37 and 36 points respectively for 4th and 5th positions.
