Fresh from anchoring the national golf team to finish 4th overall at the concluded Region Five Golf Tournament in Kitwe, Zambia, Kenyan top amateur golfer Edwin Mudanyi will be seeking to defend his Winston Churchill golf day at par 72 Thika Sports Club in next weekend.
The event, which is the 5th in the Kenya amateur Golf Championships a Golfer of the Year (GOTY) event, Mudanyi will be chasing to defend his title he won last year in the two day event with golfers taking on 36 holes.
“Am training very well to defend my Winston Churchill title next weekend,” said the vet Lab based golfer.
The golfer was among the four golfers who represented Kenya in Zambia that included GOTY series leader Alfred Nandwa from Railway Golf Club, who was the team captain, Samuel Njoroge also of Railway Golf Club and Limuru Country Club John Karichu.
“Am quite confident I will defend my title since I have embarked on serious practice routine after Kitwe show. So by next weekend I will be good to go for a win in Thika,” said the confident Mudanyi.
As the defending champion he knows he will be facing challenges from top golfers but that has not shocked him as he has what it takes to win back the title.
“My game play is in good shape. Am ready to beat the Thika Sports Club Course. I know it will be tough since everyone in the top ten in KAGC championships is always in front line to win,” added Mudanyi.
Last year, Mudanyi won after he played three over 714 on 36 holes. He played two over 74 on the opening day and one over 73 on the last day.
