Kenneth Bollo, the winner of Golfer of The Year (Goty) title has set his focus on playing at Kenya Open come next March, which has never been won by Kenyan golfer with Sweden’s Sebastian Solderberg winning the 2016 title.

Despite his poor show in the Coastal Club after playing 230 (79, 78 and 73) for a three day showpiece, he had done his job well in the past.
“I did not do well but I thank God I had finished my job before coming to the last tournament,” said Royal Club’s golfer.
He started his winning formula at Sigona Bowl, moved to win at Mount Kenya Championships in Nyeri, won Muthaiga Open; lift Windsor Classic, Trans Nzoia Championships at Kitale club finally winning Kabete Open at Vet Lab.
“Am still amateur but I want to try and train as much as possible to do well at Kenya Open. That is my target,” added Bollo.
Apart from playing at Kenya Open next year that kicks off on March 23rd to 26th at Muthaiga Golf club, the golfer is seeking for a sponsor to enable secure an admission at Q-school in South Africa.
“I want to sharpen my golfing skills at Q school by learning more concerning golf. The school makes you think fast and impacts golfing skills. Once I leave that school, I will be one of the best golfers across the world,” reiterated Bollo who lacks a sponsor to take him to Q-school.
“My prayer is to get a sponsor for my study. Right now I don’t have a sponsor but I have hope I will get one day,” added Bollo.
